Norman Blake's Funky Flatpicking

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris: 

One of the great things about Norman Blake as a flatpicker is his funkiness. No other flatpicker is as bold and unapologetic as Norman. It's awesome. He's as funky as flatpicking gets and this final solo epitomizes that quality so well. As with last week's boogie woogie solo, the name of the game here is finding and committing to a take-no-prisoners groove.
