Bass and rhythm guitar accompaniment is provided for songs at normal speed and at a slower speed so you can play along. A handy booklet is included with exact transcriptions of songs and playing techniques in tablature.
After a quick review of the basics, you'll learn how to combine melody note picking with chord strums to create full sounding arrangements to a variety of popular bluegrass songs. Then you'll progress into open scale flat picking and apply hammers, pull-offs, slides, and string bending to develop flashy lead picking solos. As you advance, you'll learn cross picking breaks that you can apply to previously learned tunes. Then you'll top it all off by learning several bluegrass style endings.
