Taught By Rob Ickes
Award-winning instrumentalist Rob Ickes has created a comprehensive course to help you master all aspects of the resonator guitar, from bar techniques to fingerpicking rolls.

You'll learn correct hand positions for fast and clean playing, powerful forward and reverse right hand rolls, basic music theory and all aspects of good bar technique.
