While guitarists in such diverse genres of music as jazz, rock 'n' roll, blues, new age, pop, world, and folk have been known to wield a flatpick, the word flatpicking is most often used to describe a style of guitar playing that evolved from early country music and bluegrass. Musicians such as Riley Puckett, Mother Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, George Shuffler, Jimmy Martin, Tony Rice, Clarence White, and hundreds more have contributed to a style that allows its practitioners to produce a driving or subtle rhythm and clear, fluid, virtuosic solos. Flatpicking is the ideal style for acoustic guitarists in bands that include instruments with more natural volume than the acoustic guitar. It's also a great technique for solo singers who want a powerful rhythmic accompaniment. In this book, we bring you 12 lessons that explore the roots and branches of flatpicking, taught by Acoustic Guitar magazine's master teachers. Each lesson introduces an essential technique and illustrates it with musical examples from folk, bluegrass, old-time, and Celtic music that you can use immediately. The book is divided into two sections, "Backup Styles" and "Playing Melodies and Leads," each of which begins with basic techniques before delving into flatpicking's more refined subtleties. If you're unfamiliar with any terms or techniques used, check the music notation key. Whether you're new to the flatpick or guitar and want to get started on the right track, or an old hand who's either in search of new ideas or a review of fundamentals, you're sure to find inspiration and fuel for perspiration here.
