David Grissom - Open Road Guitar
You’d only need fingers and toes to count up the number of guitarists whose sound is so singular that you’d recognize them immediately by ear alone. David Grissom would definitely make that list long before you even got to your toes. In fact, David’s tone, style and musicality is so distinct that it likely wouldn’t take more than a measure or two to crack a smile of recognition.
David organized Open Road Guitar into two sections. In the first section, he presents the 25 key concepts and techniques that comprise his signature style: Hand Position, Picking Technique, Hybrid Picking, Hybrid Hammers & Pulls, Double Stops, Soloing with Triads, Vibrato, String Bending, Pedal Steel Style Bends, Pedal Steel Licks in Other Styles, Using the Thumb, Texas Shuffle Feel, Pedal Tones, Using Sus Chords, Rakes, Chord Voicings For Rhythm, Soloing Within Chords, Major Scale Fingerings, Mixolydian Mode, Dorian Mode, Pentatonic Scale Fingerings, Adding Chromatics, Incorporating Open Strings, What Makes A Great Solo and Gear Talk.
In the second section, David guides you through 10 soloing studies where he demonstrates and breaks down solos, which apply all of the key concepts and techniques from the first section: A Funky Vamp, Rolling E Train, Minor Pedal, Texas Shuffle, Taking the A7 Train, The Milk Truck, Slow B Groove, Slow E Groove, Wide Open E and Major All Over. As a special bonus for Grissom fans, David also shows you the “correct” way to play What Passes For Love (worth the price of admission alone!).
David demonstrates all of the key concepts and techniques over rhythm tracks, and then breaks it all down in a clear and very accessible manner. All of the performance examples are likewise performed over killer rhythm tracks and then broken down technique-by-technique. The performances are tabbed and notated, plus all of the rhythm tracks are included for you to work with on your own.
