Greg Booth – Alaska based Dobro Virtuoso and YouTube Sensation – Ep. #26
Check out Greg Booth’s Dobro Playing with The Kathy Kallick Band
In this Podcast, episode #26 I interview Alaska based Dobro Virtuoso Greg Booth. Greg has a multitude of amazing Dobro videos on YouTube, and was a huge inspiration to me when I was just starting out, and is still inspiring with every new video he posts. He talks all about his musical background and how he got started, and answers various questions from fans on Facebook (Drop “E” tuning, his custom Scheerhorn Resonator Guitar, tone, technique, and much more). He also plays examples of a few of his arrangements. I think you will really enjoy this! Thanks again to Greg Booth for taking the time and being such gracious to answer so many of your questions.
