Not my cup of tea...but good job
This is a really cool lesson, the sound is incredibly blue grass. I also love the way that you finger pick
Man this is just cool, this is why i love GMC, i just got done Learning some Speed Metal riffs, and now i can go straight into some bluegrass, excellent lesson man, great sound and excellent fingerpicking technique.
Not my style at all, but i like how you fingerpick.
Hey thanx guys. It was a fun lesson to do! Ok it is heavy on the Bluegrass vibe for some I'm sure, but that right hand picking exercise in vid 7 is useful to learn finger picking to suit any style I reckon.
Like even at another extreme, a heavily chorused fingerpicking intro for say an Ozzy sorta song, where a strong righthand is essential - I find this exercise is a great way to get something like that under your fingers.
I've even used it for practicing some bits while I was watching T.V . It's great for "programming" in a pattern you need, or are working on.
On the Bluegrass subject, anyone into Eric Johnson out there? I think he's a fine player and overall musician. The reason I mention him here is that he's actually a huge Chet Atkins fan and incorporates a lot of this "style" into his stuff. So it can be changed around a bit.
Can't ever see Ozzy playing Bluegrass Country to be honest though, but ya knowharimean !
Eric Johnson - yes! I just heard Manhattan for the first time a couple of weeks ago and it blew me away
Absolutely brilliant! Great job David!
It's my cup of tea - and I love it!
Awesome, great job.
Very good lesson! I just got to learn how to do that simply because not knowing this stuff at all it will improve my playing a lot.
And for anyone in doubt about Ozzy, listen to "Diary of a madman" from the album with the same name.
i like bluegrass.
also the fast bluegrass like buckethead does
I miss Chet:(
I like the lesson.. just not exactly the best representation on Chet Atkins style of picking, which is FAR more complex. Then again, you've got to start slow.
Well I was careful to mention at the start that it was more in the feel and area of Bluegrass/Mr. Atkins, and not an exact copy of his style, which is indeed ... well it's Chet innit .
re: MickeM/"Diary of a madman"
Great album that!
another good blue grass, but more banjo esque, is Buckethead's "Hog Bitch Stomp" which is done using finger picking and sounds back woods whacky if you ask me.
Some player that Buckethead isn't he? I have one of his tracks faved up at YouTube - great tune called 'Nottingham Lace'. Big tribute typa thing to Hendrix, with his own stuff in there of course. Have to dig out a few more.
Yeh some of those lesson licks are on the banjoesquey side alright - is that a word ?
