Steve Kaufman teaches you how to play solid rhythm, from playing behind the simplest two-chord song to the complex chord progressions needed to accompany Texas-style fiddle tunes.
He starts with the fundamentals, showing you how to hold a pick, get good tone, and play the basic bass/chord rhythm patterns solidly and accurately. Then he moves on to important embellishments, such as adding bass walks, playing the famous Lester Flatt 'G Run', altering your chord shapes to add moving bass lines within a song and other essential techniques.
This lesson in back-up rhythm guitar is illustrated with some classic bluegrasas tunes. Playing along with Steve on 'Wabash Cannonball, Blackberry Blossom, and Sally Goodin' will give you the practice you'll need to use these techniques in other bluegrass songs.
