Hey everybody!

I wanted to give an update as of today, 12/21/2016.  

I was going to catch up with VEs today but have been fighting a nasty virus won't be able to work today. 

My family holiday starts tomorrow and I'll be "out of the office" til late next week.  I don't like to get this far behind but I don't need to push things.

Thanks for your understanding and patience. I'm looking forward to a strong 2017 here on the site!

Happy Holidays to everyone - Bryan

bryan sutton molly tuttle

This interview was filmed in the Artistworks RV at RockyGrass 2016. Molly had performed on the main stage earlier in the day and Bryan was intrigued by her claw hammer style guitar playing. In this interview Bryan and Molly discuss musical inspiration, current projects and Molly teaches Bryan some claw hammer technique on the guitar.  They jam the flatpicking standard "St. Anne's Reel" in part 1 and later in part 3 they perform "Been All Around This World" with Molly singing and playing.  We also have live performance footage from Molly's main stage performance set coming soon which features Missy Raines on bass, John Mailander on fiddle and Wes Cornet on banjo so stay tuned! Find this new 3 part series in the +Music area or just click here

country guitar songs

Whether plucked, strummed, or chicken-picked, the guitar is easily the most prominent instrument in country music. Country guitar songs are some of the easiest and most fun to learn how to play, and with a little practice, you’ll be picking and grinning right along. To help get you started, here are some of the top country guitar songs of all time.

Hank Williams “Your Cheating Heart” 

In the pantheon of country music, few artists have influenced and shaped the guitar more than Hank Williams. “Your Cheating Heart” features Hank’s delicate but powerful strumming which is accentuated by his signature mournful wail.
