Thanks for this find
Boy does I gots some Qs now !
In the opening it looks like his tuning tension/string gauges may be as light as what I use on my deliberately soft Strat set up (but his delineation of gauges says its actually heavier on the high strings).
I can see the strings bending toward the neck from no more pressure than he exerts than slightly tilting the bar toward the bass/treble sides).
Is that uncommon ?

I also note that he sometimes actually rolls the bar on the strings rather than just sliding it back & forth.
Same Q...?

Otherwise, good to be reminded that "Dobro" = [TM]
Notice that the strings offer a refractive, prismatic visual effect at certain angles...I wonder who's gonna do something w/that in a vid. idk
Seem silly ?
Why y'think they call it show biz ?!

More seriously, the description of the Fishman Aura is very informative.

Finally, electric URB against the back wall...
I see no other instruments in the room.
Is that something Douglas plays or does his bassist just visit a lot ?

You could find the time to check this out, but could not find the time to check out my post on Blues Delight. Well at least I know my place in the line now.

Cleared up by PM, all is well. I have a concussion, it think it is affecting my thinking.
