Steve Kaufman's detailed instruction and inspired arrangements are designed to help you learn to play beloved gospel songs while developing your skills in bluegrass and country flatpicking. Beginners will get started with basic accompaniment while intermediate players will find new ways to pick instrumental solos using more advanced techniques. Steve plays the chords and melody of each song slowly enough so even novice guitarists can easily follow along. He shows you how to play rhythm back-up and how to pick out tunes while strumming the chords, flatpick style. Once you've got the basics down, you'll learn how to add bass walks, hammerons, pull-offs and runs to enhance your song accompaniment. Diminished chords, turnarounds, bluegrass-style licks, rhythm patterns, double-stops, chord substitutions and other useful guitar techniques enhance your distinctive arrangements of these country style gospel tunes as well as your guitar knowledge in general.
