Power Picking

In this lesson, we’ll take the primary 8-bar themes from several Celtic fiddle tunes, arrange them for guitar, and use the results to polish our flatpicking chops, timing, and tone. The themes have been rigged for maximum sonic vibe not playing comfort so they’re tricky in places. Within a line, for instance, we’ll play the same note in different locations to facilitate a slur. Or we’ll create harp-like cascades by alternating fretted notes and open strings. In short, we’ll search for fingerings that challenge our dexterity while adding mojo to the melodies. This lesson includes Power Tab and is featured on the following CD compilations: ACOUSTIC U.
