Bryan Sutton’s Secrets For Successful Flatpicking
Jul 22 2014
This extraordinary DVD lesson is filled with spectacular picking, detailed instruction and invaluable advice for aspiring bluegrass guitarists at all levels. Bryan Sutton thoughtfully and methodically lays out his tricks of the trade to help you play any tune and improve your flatpicking speed, power, timing and musicianship. Bryan addresses many of the problems that he sees in aspiring pickers, and passes along tips on how to keep your picking hand and arm tension-free and your fretting hand supple and quick.
He provides drills and exercises, teaching an arsenal of licks, bends, double stops, slides and some other devices that will help you build powerful and memorable solos. In a special section on rhythm playing, Bryan plays backup to Cody Kilby’s lead solos and shows how, by varying his chords and bass runs, he builds a groove and enhances the tune. He breaks down, in detail, famous bluegrass jam session tunes -Daley’s Reel, Texas Gales, Wild Bill Jones and Beaumont Rag – each of which shows a different aspect of the flatpick experience. “Once your technique and fundamentals are down you can just play and let the ideas take over.” – Bryan
Bryan play and talk about his experiences is worth the cost of this dvd. He does share some secrets behind his picking technique (right hand) and that was what I was most interested in. There’s some good tab that comes with the disk. I would recomend it to those players interested in this style of music. He’s one of the best pickers out there.
