Flatpick guitar is the name given to the style of playing simple melodies on the upper strings whilst strumming an accompaniment on the lower strings, and Dix Bruce's DVD will show you how.
Developed by Mother Maybelle Carter, this self-accomopaniment method is the foundation upon which all traditional folk, bluegrass and country techniques have been built. Bruce uses nine great country classics and bluegrass standards to give you the chance to master this special skill. He demonstrates the bass note/strum technique and shows how melodies can easily be integrated into known chord patterns. There are also sections that will help you transpose tunes into almost any other key desired - a very important and useful skill, especially in group-playing situations.
