Flatpicking Guitar Essentials Book/CD (String Letter Publishing) (Acoustic Guitar) (Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s Private Lessons) Sheet music – December 1. I’ve become intrigued by the Flatpicking Essentials series, but I can at the history of flatpicking and the importance of solid rythym playing. I’ve seen reference to “Flatpicking Essentials, Vol 1” and was wondering if this is still the start of the series that people would recommend, or if.

If you have any specific questions about one of the books, let me flatoicking. I have them all, and like them mostly. When I get it in I may start a thread for those that are working through it to help each other. I’m looking forward to working my way slowly but surely through the series.

Dan and Tim and Brad Davis, who is sort of the unofficial Third Musketeer but is too busy to be involved all the time are first class all the way.
I like Dan’s stuff because I find it well written, well produced, durable materials.

Take your playing to the next level with the help of a local or online flatpicked guitar teacher. Volume 2 is really excellent too I bought them as a two pack.
I have been playing for ten years and finally have started to develop the consistency to sound “good” it’s all about the rhythm y’know.
They had a lot of exercises and tunes, but I always felt that there was a bit of a gap between learning folding scales, etc, and actually putting them to flatpiciing. Those two volumes are gems. Mostly me, of course! Find a Teacher Take your playing to the next level with the help of a local or online flatpicked guitar teacher. The only reason I would hesitate to recommend this series is I’m ashamed to say we don’t actually own any of the material.
Volume 1 starts with one chord “boom chuck” and progresses to some intermediate rhythm by the end.

The books are a bit wordy for some but that is part of what I enjoy about it. Find all posts by innocent Find all posts by WonderMonkey. I started my flatpicking journey with it and I made huge strides quickly.
I recently purchased volume 1 of the series and IMHO it was very well done. Slightly different but very complimentary. Simple to more complex with various exercises in between. I have volumes and 8. I’ve ordered this 2 pack, thanks for pointing me to it.

So the question still stands, is this series still a recommended standard or is there something that you would put in it’s place? Eseentials seen reference to “Flatpicking Essentials, Vol 1” and was wondering if this is still the start of the series that people would recommend, or if something has replaced it.
