Rob,
   What a great song.  I loved it, especially as you know
that the Dobro is one of my favourite instruments.
It sounded so good that I have played it several times.

Thanks Lesley
Len Cohen was one of the 'pioneers' of bluegrass Dobro playing in Australia.
He had a very loud and powerful 'attack' on the instrument, yet could make it 'sing' pretty when he wanted to. He played in a style like Buck (Josh) Graves, the first well known dobro player who featured with Flatt and Scruggs in the 50s and 60s.
Cheers
Rob
