Take A Peek Inside!
I created this course for three different purposes:
To give beginner reso players a solid start by teaching foundational skills
To share insights with experienced players that can fix any bad habits they may have acquired
To offer fans of reso guitars an inside look at how it is made and how it is played

Jerry de-mystifies the resophonic guitar by breaking down basic concepts into easily learned lessons and gets you playing the right way, right away.
BEEN PLAYING FOR YEARS?
Get rid of your bad habits and pick up some tips and insights from the premier reso player of his generation. Learn the essential exercises and techniques he uses in his own practice routine.

Dobro master and 14-time GRAMMY winner Jerry Douglas is to the resonator guitar what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar, elevating, transforming, and reinventing the instrument in countless ways.
Additionally, Douglas is a freewheeling, forward-thinking recording and touring artist whose output incorporates elements of country, bluegrass, rock, jazz, blues, and Celtic into his distinctive musical vision.
Called “Dobro’s matchless contemporary master” by The New York Times, three-time CMA Musician of the Year award recipient Jerry Douglas is one of the most innovative recording artists in music.
Jerry shines and soars as a solo artist, band leader for The Jerry Douglas Band and his GRAMMY winning bluegrass band The Earls of Leicester, as well as a member of groundbreaking ensembles including Alison Krauss & Union Station, J.D. Crowe & the New South, The Country Gentlemen, Boone Creek, and Strength In Numbers.
