Top definition
this is a resophonic slide guitar played by fingerpicking and a steel bar-slide which puts the tens of millions of standard guitars to shame with its most tremendous sustain and tone. It is often referred to as a "hubcap" guitar due to its appearance. In the presence of a dobro, other guitars shudder and whisper (without much tone): "Dobros pwn us, and we are unworthy of attention!"
Holy Moley, that Jerry Douglas must be the Dobro God.

An imaginary monkey on your back who messes things up for you. That monkey is your dobro. It is associated with social and physical blunders. Can be used as a noun, adjective or verb.

It is important that whatever the dobro messes up or "dobros" for you must have had a legitimate chance of success. Outright failures and belligerent actions are not dobros, or are not caused by the dobro.
As a noun
"I've made peace with my dobro"

As a verb
Boy: "I set my alarm for PM instead of AM and missed class"
Girl: "You dobro'd that"

As a adjective
Boy: "hey Sally"
Girl: "My name is Susan"
Boy: "oops, that was dobro"
