Up to this point,
we've covered a lot of basics for a solid
bluegrass approach to the guitar.
A bluegrass guitar player is gonna have a
strong rhythmic foundation We've covered
some of the basic chord shapes and rhythm
patterns and things like that.
Now we're gonna step into what sort of
defines flat picking and
lead single-note playing for bluegrass is
the single-note style, single-note lead.
And so, what we're gonna cover in this new
section are some of the building blocks of
what flat picking is.
And through the same sort of, you know,
step-by-step process and
trying to isolate things down to their
core element give you things to work on to
help build a strong foundation upon which
