This dvd lesson will have you flatpicking lead breaks in styles from Maybelle Carter and Doc Watson. You'll learn to embellish melodies with "hammer-ons" and "pull-offs" for that real old-time country sound, and build solid technique, advancing step by step through single-note arrangements of Thompson's Rag, fiddle hoedowns Arkansas Traveler and Soldier's Joy and a bluesy bluegrass break for Good Old Mountain Dew. Eric's invaluable tips on left-hand fingering and right-hand pick technique are clearly illustrated in split-screen close-ups. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
