Award-winning instrumentalist Rob Ickes has created a comprehensive course to help you master all aspects of the resonator guitar, thomann from bar technique to fingerpicking rolls. He covers everything you'll need to hold your own in a bluegrass band, from fine-tuning the strings to achieving good tone, timing and volume control.
Bar technique is the key to good slide playing, and Rob shows hammer-ons and pull-offs, string thomann muting, "tilting" technique for cleaner sounds and the special hand positions necessary to play forward and reverse bar slants. Banjo-like forward and reverse rolls provide important workouts for developing a smooth right hand, enabling you to play a basic melody along with added notes to fill out the thomann arrangement.
With Jim Hurst on guitar and vocals, you'll learn how to play back-up rhythm and fills behind a vocalist, create effective solos and a myriad of other important topics. His demonstration performances of Reuben and Flat Lonesome bring all the elements of this superb lesson together.
Whether you want to play bluegrass or explore country, blues, Hawaiian or other styles, these DVDs will get you on the right track – fast.
