Guitar Crosspicking Technique MB97177 $19.95

Crosspicking technique on guitar is similar to bluegrass banjo, filling in all of the spaces between melody notes with a steady stream of harmony notes. With applied crosspicking technique, the guitar becomes a forceful solo instrument capable of filling a room with colorfully supported melodies. Not only does the guitar support itself, but crosspicking technique also works effectively for supporting other lead instruments and vocals in many styles of music including classical, rock, country, bluegrass, jazz, and new age. The methodology section of this book offers the intermediate to advanced guitarist many new ideas which can be added to their arsenal. The book also includes a full songbook section with an even wider repertoire to pursue. All of the lessons and songs are written in tablature only, so you don't have to read music, just count!

25 Great Back-Up Licks for Flatpicking Guitar MB96899 $8.95
Classical guitarists universally recognize the term "rest stroke" to signify a specific technique in which the right-hand fingers pluck a string, coming to rest on the adjoining lower string. In this book and video renowned teacher and performer Joe Carr demonstrates the many benefits of applying the rest stroke to an acoustic guitar via flatpick. All 25 of the licks featured in this book and video feature the "flatpick rest stroke" which employs consecutive down strokes rather than alternating down-up picking, with the pick coming to rest on the adjoining upper string. This technique is used to articulate bass runs, particularly in rhythm playing. The end result is improved projection and a unique cadence that can't be achieved with down-up picking. The licks in this book are arranged progressively through various keys, meters, and progressions. Once mastered they will add power and variety to your rhythm and solo playing.
