quite a few years now, Rob Anderlik's elegant site has
been a treasure trove of audio, video, and transcriptions
for use by anyone who is working to build their repertoire
and instrumental skills on the resophonic guitar. Exercises,
full song arrangements, and even lively interviews with
top players, and all of this is available to anyone
who wants to take advantage of it. I've learned a tremendous
amount from Rob Anderlik, and I've never even met him
in person. I recommend it all the time."

two things I like best about Rob's site are its width
and its depth. The tabs and audio/video clips run the
gamut of styles from folk to blues to bluegrass; and
whatever your level of proficiency, you'll find something
to challenge you and make you stretch--from exercises,
to simple beginner's tunes to intermediate standards
to knucklebusters and lots in between. What impresses
me the most is not merely Rob's considerable skill as
a musician. It's his commitment to the instrument, and
to helping everyone and anyone derive the greatest joy
and satisfaction from the music they make. Whenever
I've lobbed an email question Rob's way, within a day
I'd receive a detailed (but perfectly lucid) answer
as well as suggestions and supplementary information,
all of which helped make me a better player. Most of
us will never approach Rob's level of playing. But for
those of us who merely want to be the best we can be
(apologies to the US Army), Rob's site is an invaluable
resource. As is he."
"Rob's enthusiasm for all things dobro is highly contagious.
You can tell immediately by taking a class or viewing
his website that Rob eats, breathes and sleeps dobro."
Rob teaches in such a way that empowers the student,
allowing the lesson not only to be learned, but to be
adapted to real world situations (i.e. jams, studio
work, etc.). His focus on ear training, tone, and putting
feeling into what you are playing is a lesson that is
invaluable to every musician. He has provided a wealth
of resophonic guitar information through his website,
likely one of the only websites that has been so thoughtfully
produced with the dobro student in mind. A fantastic
resource for beginners and advanced players alike."
is really excited about his instrument and about teaching,
and it comes across in every class. I can tell he prepares
thoroughly before each class or lesson. Rob shows us
that the dobro is versatile for just about any genre,
but also adapts the instruction to what each student
wants to learn. His website is a great resource for
practicing material between classes, and he updates
it according to what students are working on."
is very lucky to have Rob Anderlik available to teach
the dobro. This isn't an easy instrument to just pick
up and play, so a good teacher who lays down the proper
fundamentals is critical to a new player. Rob's that
teacher. Rob does it all. He provides the tabs, the
right hand technique, the measure by measure instruction,
and slow and regular speed video of the music so you
can practice at home and learn the lesson, song and
technique. You would be surprised how much you miss
during a live lesson that you see and learn at your
own pace at home.
