This week we are going to dive into the deep end with Tony Rice's version of Church Street Blues. It's dizzying with it's syncopations and unexpected runs, but it's somehow supremely elegant and powerful at the same time. To me, the secret to that lies in Tony's unorthodox right hand approach, which is the focus of this week's lesson.
Enjoy and good luck!
p.s. This lesson is very advanced so don't lose hope if it feels really hard. It is really hard, but, in my opinion, worth studying for the perspective gained on how to manipulate shading and color with a flatpick.
