Bluegrass Guitar Solo of the Week

Live Guitar Course: Expand your Bluegrass flatpicking vocabulary by learning a new solo every week!

Learn a new Bluegrass guitar solo each week. We'll be focusing on the acoustic flatpicking guitar style, but these solos can be played on any type of guitar, acoustic or electric. Expand your vocabulary of licks, tricks and melodies over standard chord progressions that you can incorporate into any type of music that you play. These solos are inspired by some of the greats of bluegrass and country/folk music like Mother Maybelle Carter, Doc Watson, Clarence White and others!
