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.

Flatpicking Essentials vol 1. I’ve seen reference to “Flatpicking Essentia,s, Vol 1” and was wondering if this is still the start of the series that people would recommend, or if something has replaced 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? Last edited by WonderMonkey; at I started my flatpicking journey with it and I made flatpucking strides quickly.
The books are a bit wordy for some but that is part of what I enjoy about it. I will read the words between practices and use the vlatpicking to build on the verbal foundation.
Volume 1 starts with one chord “boom chuck” and progresses to some intermediate rhythm by the end. Volume 2 gets into carter style and leads.
If you are looking for more “lesson” style course. Artistworks academy of bluegrass with Brian Sutton is fantastic in my opinion. I joined earlier this year and has renewed until already. It’s a video submission style course. You send a video in, about a week later you get a personalized response.
I am in no way affiliated with either course but am happy with both for my personal use. If you have any specific questions, let me know. Originally Posted by innocent That is the same route I took.

I did almost all of volume 1 and half of volume 2 then started on Artistworks. Volume 1 will take you through various “boom chucks”, adding notes between chords i. Walking up or down to a chord, g runs, and then into different styles of rhythm playing. I would suggest using a metronome a lot. Helps you find the groove.
After all that is rhythm. Volume 2 is really excellent too I bought them as a two pack. It will get you into lead playing. Depends on where you see your playing going. This evolution is kind of how the book is arranged.
Simple to more complex with various exercises in between. Originally Posted by WonderMonkey. I’ve ordered this 2 pack, thanks for pointing me to it. Vol 1 is leading me right where I flatpkcking to go. I hope to also be able to get through vol 2, but I’m a hard learning. Originally Posted by srick.
I don’t think you are a hard learner; these basic skills take years to perfect. 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. Try to play along with the recording as much as possible.
I’m also working through Flatpicking Essentials Vol. Slightly different but very complimentary.
When I get it in I may start a thread for those that are working through it to help each other. Mostly me, of course! I’d join in a thread. I am focusing mostly on my Artistworks lessons but I still visit flatpicking essentials at least weekly. So this thread sent me back to Flatpocking this evening and what a great series it is! I copied all of the cd’s to the hard drive and the run them through transcribe!
Of course any slow-downer essential work and they provide great exercises for both flat and fingerpickers.
