General Note

  • The resonator guitar, which is a type of dobro, that Johnny Brown is playing was likely modified to look the way it does. One possibilty is that Brown used a radio cone speaker and inserted it into the dobro, thus allowing it to resonate and change the sound. Or it may simply be an off-brand wood bodied Dobro/Resonator guitar, which are fairly common.
  • Performed for the American Folklore Society meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah.
