Notes and TAB PDF on Disc
Since its earliest days, bluegrass songs have incorporated
elements of the blues in their licks, melodies, chord progressions and
especially their titles. Steve Kaufman, Homespun’s most prolific and
popular flatpick guitar instructor, brings his masterful skills to an
engaging and user-friendly compendium of twelve “bluesy” bluegrass
standards that will serve any intermediate-level picker well in a jam,
practice session or performance.
Each of the tunes that Steve explores brings hot new
flatpicking techniques to the learning player, carefully taught in an
ascending degree of difficulty. You’ll start out learning the
well-known Little Maggie, developing a simple chord-based minor melody
into a little flatpicking gem. Steve quickly ratchets up the level of
melodic and pick-hand complexity with a number of Doc Watson-influenced
tunes learned from his days of playing with his mentor: Brown’s Ferry
Blues, Deep River Blues, Milk Cow Blues, East Tennessee Blues and Shady
also learn great licks and solos for Florida Blues, Wayfaring Stranger,
Lonesome Road Blues, Blue Ridge Mountain Blues, Salty Dog Blues and a
powerful jazz-inflected version of St. Louis Blues.
lesson will be essential for every aspiring bluegrass-style flatpicker
who wants to build a solid repertoire of great tunes.
