My arrangement of Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd. This is a good example of working around minor chords playing a chop by controlling bar pressure to alternate between percussive sounds and full notes. I'll eventually get around to posting a lesson on this at my website, but for now I just wanted to put this out there for anyone who is looking for some ideas on how to work around minor chords while playing a chop 

Workshop at Old Town School of Folk Music, Chicago. Sept. 22 7pm

Hi all -if you're within reach of Chicago on Monday, Sept. 22, I'm giving an hour-and-a-half workshop on Dobro minor chords, double-stops, and arpeggios--and generally how to navigate minor chords when they appear in a song. In all my years of teaching Dobro, I've found that most students are less adept at playing melodies over minor chords than they are at major chords. There's no good reason for this, especially given that Dobro sounds so good and expressive over minor chords. Most players - from beginning to advanced - will come away with some good concepts that can be used right away to play better music. After the workshop, I think the plan is for Chris and me to play a few songs together, too.

We're in the Chicago area the 2 days prior as well: Saturday in Lockport for "A Slice of Bluegrass" concert and Sunday at Uncommon Ground on Clark. Hope to see some of you there!
