Introduction
Flatpicking Guitar Magazine, in conjunction with Mel Bay Publications, is proud to bring you this sampler of flatpicking guitar music from twenty of the best bluegrass guitar players in the business. This CD project, the third in an annual series, originally grew out of requests we recei ved from our readers regarding an audio reference for the material we present in the magazine. All of the tunes on this CD have been transcribed in both standard music notation and tablature within the pages of the third volume of the magazine (six issues). If you are not familiar with our magazine and would like a free sample copy, please write to the address listed below, or call (800) 413- 8296. After we produced the first flatpicking CD sampler in 1997, Bill Bay of Mel Bay Publications approached us about publishing a book that would include all of the transcriptions as well as some information about each of the artists on the CD. That book, Flatpicking Collection: 1997 Annual Edition (MB97342BCD) published in 1998 by Mel Bay Publications, contained all of the transcriptions as they appeared in our magazine during our first year of publication. That first book and CD were so well received, we decided to make it an annual event. What you are holding in your hands is the third book in this flatpicking series.
On the majority of the cuts on the CD the artists play more than one break to each song, however, in most cases you will only find one of those breaks transcribed here. For the most part, the biographical material presented in this book was extracted from more complete articles that were published about these artists in Flatpicking Guitar Magazine.
Please support the artists that appear on this sampler by purchasing the source CDs. If you have any trouble finding these CDs, give us a call and we will help. We owe a special thanks to all of the artists on this CD for their time, effort and talent; their record companies for allowing us to use this material; and Mel Bay Publications for publishing the book. Dan Miller

Gary Brewer ·
The Old Minor Joe Clark
Bio written by Dan Miller
Gary Brewer is immensely proud of his Roan Mountain, Tennessee, heritage and his family's musical tradition. "I am the fifth generation of bluegrass music in my family," Brewer states, matter of factly. "Our family was playing bluegrass before it was called bluegrassthat' s why we sometimes call it 'brew grass,' " he says with a wink and a smile, certainly not wanting to take anything away from his friend and mentor Bill Monroe. The family connection is certainly apparent during one of Brewer's performances. Not a show goes by when Gary doesn't announce, "this next tune will be played in the 'old-time' style of my grand-daddy 'Pap' Brewer." Gary's father, Finley "Jim" Brewer, Jr., who drives the band's bus and picks the guitar, is also called up on stage to sing a few numbers with Gary during the show. Additionally, when the show is close to home, Gary's five year old son, Wayne, will come up on stage with his dad and his "Papaw" to sing a song or two. About a year ago Wayne Brewer even performed with his father on the Grand Ole Opry and became the youngest person ever to perform on that stage. Thanks to Bill Monroe, Gary has an open invitation to perform at the Grand Ole Opry and has done so on several occasions. Gary Brewer began playing the guitar when he was nine years old, beginning on the electric guitar. His transition to the acoustic guitar occurred when he was twelve years old when Gary became fully immersed in bluegrass music. He began listening closely to the albums and eight-track tapes that his dad had around the house. The music that inspired him the most was that of the Stanley Brothers. He says, 'The Stanleys had that mountain influence and mountain sound. They were from the same region of the country and I could identify with it." As a result, his early guitar influences, other than his father and grandfather, were George Shuffler and Bill Napier. He also said that he remembers seeing Norman Blake play on "Hee Haw" when he was a young teenager. Although Gary was exposed to, and greatly enjoyed, the music of many bluegrass guitar players, he has never tried to copy or imitate anybody. He says, "I started my own band when I was fifteen years old and began writing my own material immediately. I was busy doing something that would be all mine instead of copying records. I was hearing what was inside of me on the guitar." When Gary was about fifteen some school mates who had heard that he could play the guitar asked him to join them in a talent contest. He went to one boy's house to rehearse and saw that they had a banjo and mandolin. They started to jam and it developed into a great afternoon picking session. When Gary got home that night he announced to his parents that he was going to start a bluegrass band. He named the band the Kentucky Ramblers and is still, over eighteen years later, playing under that same band name. Gary began his professional career in about 1979 and since that time has recorded 34 projects under his own name; filled in for Ralph Stanley's guitar player on occasion during the early 1980s; actually took Bill Monroe's place on stage at Fan Fair in 1996 and filled in for the Father of Bluegrass with his Bluegrass Boys when Monroe was in the hospital; toured Europe in 1995, selling out every show and recording a highly acclaimed "Live in Europe" album in the process; has been the main-stay act in the mayor of Louisville's music program for the past fourteen years; toured with Bill Monroe; played on the Grand Ole Opry as a featured act; played for President Ointon during a campaign stop in Louisville; recorded the sound track to a soon-to-be-released major motion picture "The Floyd Collins Story"; has played at nearly every major bluegrass event in the country; and eight years ago he started, and still runs, the country's largest free Bluegrass festival. On top of all that, and of special interest to readers of this magazine, he has recorded a highly acclaimed guitar instrumental album which as released in 1995.

When asked about his success, Gary says, "From the time I first started as a teenager, I understood that there was only going to be one Ralph Stanley. I knew that I needed to do something different in order to be recognized. I attribute my success to that fact that I record and perform my own material. I have never tried to copy anyone. Ninety percent of what I do in my show is Brewer material." On the following page, we have transcribed Gary's first break to "Old Minor
Joe Clark" from his Guitar CD. Gary said that he had been fooling around with minor chords one day and began to play the old mountain ballad "Old Joe Clark" out of A minor. He named his arrangement the tune "The Old Minor Joe Clark." The transcription on the next page was taken from a Mel Bay book which contains complete transcriptions of the songs on Gary's CD.

Rob Pearcy·- Kentucky Waltz
Written by Dan Miller

The name Rob Pearcy might not be one that you recognize right away, but take a look at the photo on the CD cover. If you've ever attended Steve Kaufman's flatpick camp, or witnessed any of the flatpicking guitar competitions anywhere from Merlefest all the way west to Winfield, you'll undoubtedly say, "I remember that guy!" Rob is the kind of guy that you'll tend to remember if you have ever seen him. His tall, lanky build, long goatee, lightning-bolt guitar strap, Dan Crary Model Taylor guitar and characteristic hat, complete with its long turkey feather, make him one of the most recognizable players on the flatpicking guitar competition circuit. And although he has removed his hat and dressed up a bit for the cover of his debut solo CD, Hats Off, looking at that long goatee and Taylor Dan Crary model guitar will probably still bring back memories of Rob blazing through "Lime Rock" or sweetly gliding through his fine arrangement of "Kentucky Waltz" on a competition stage somewhere. Rob Pearcy is a bluegrass music teacher by profession (teaching guitar, mandolin, banjo, dobro, fiddle, and mountain dulcimer). That statement, in and of itself, is not one to raise eyebrows. Many bluegrass musicians teach students how to play bluegrass instruments to supplement their income. The unique thing about Rob is that he teaches bluegrass music as a full-time member of the faculty at Hunters Lane High School in Nashville, Tennessee. Rob teaches about 70 students a semester at Hunters Lane. He runs three double length (an hour and forty minutes) classes a day, five days a week. The classes are divided into three blocks--one for beginners, one for intermediate level players, and an ensemble class. There are about 25 kids per class ranging from the ninth through the twelfth grade. The majority of the students enter the program with little or no experience. Rob starts all beginners playing the guitar. By the time the students reach the ensemble class, many have gone on to learn other instruments and have become quite skilled. Regarding the beginning of his interest in flatpicking, Rob says, "I would read Guitar Player magazine a lot and I keep seeing this name pop up-Doc Watson-and his acoustic flatpicking. I had really never heard it. One of the local music stores that I did business with owed me some money in trade for something so I asked them to get me the Doc Watson albums so that I could see what this guy was all about. I got all of the old Vanguard Doc Watson albums and it really changed my life. I thought, 'This is really something else!' I thought it was the greatest guitar playing I had ever heard." While Rob continued to play some electric guitar to make money, his attention and interest began to move more towards acoustic flatpicking. He says, "Frets magazine started that same year and I got the first issue. I read Dan Crary's column and learned how to play 'Salt Creek.' When I had first listened to Doc play, I thought no one else could learn to play like that. After I learned to play 'Salt Creek' reasonably well, I was excited." Rob's first contest experience was at the Smithville Fiddler's Jamboree. Of his first trip to the Smithville event, Rob said, "They had been having the festival all through the seventies. I had heard about it but never had much interest in it. After I won an acoustic guitar and began flatpicking, I thought, 'Well I'll go to that.' I took my Alvarez and it was an amazing event. I was really impressed that the people that played there kind of took me in even though I was this strange hippy guitar player. I wound up jamming with the guys who were the top three guitar players at the contest that year. I was hooked from then on out." After that rust experience at Smithville, Rob spent the next several years entering as many contests as he could find, including the Tennessee State Championship sponsored by Gallagher Guitars. He says, "It was at Gallagher's flatpicking championship that I started meeting the heavy duty flatpickers. I ran into Steve Kaufman, Roy Curry, Danny Roberts, Fred Dugin, and Mike Whitehead. They were all real nice guys and would jam with you-I thought it was the greatest thing." In addition to playing contests, Rob had also started teaching students at local music stores. One of Rob's friends, formerly a bandmate in a few of the country bands Rob had worked with over the years and at that time was a teacher at Hunter's Lane High School, brought Rob in on a new program the school was developing to teach kids bluegrass and acoustic music. Rob was rust asked to serve on the advisory committee to help choose teaching materials. A year later, when one of the teachers left the program, he was hired as a teaching assistant. He now has been working as a full-time member of the faculty for the past ten years. Having had ten years of experience teaching many students how to flatpick, Rob had the following to offer when asked to talk about what he has learned about teaching the art of flatpicking the acoustic guitar: "I see my main task as trying to teach them how to learn. As Dan Crary says in some of his instructional stuff, 'Everyone teaches themselves.' Someone else can show you how to do it, but you still have to get down to the task of doing it. I look at my job as like being a coach, and I show them the right things to do in order to learn. In flatpicking, I think it is important to learn the alternating pick technique. If I can teach them to get the alternating pick direction correct, they seem to really smooth out. It is such a simple thing that students tend to think that it is not that important." On the following pages we present the first break to Rob's arrangement of "Kentucky Waltz." This has been one of Rob's favorite contest pieces over the past several years. If you hear Rob pick it, you'll know why.
