Mike Auldridge made the notes come from his heart, trascending the instrument.

He was the greatest Dobro player ever, although Rob Ickes is a close second with his technical brilliance and jazz-based adventures.

Jerry Douglas has a large bag of tricks but plays less music than Mike Auldridge or Rob Ickes.
