Flatpicking in the Style of David Grier

Lesson ID: A0185

In this guitar lesson, we’ll work on our flatpicking technique using a variation of the melody from the song “Wheel Hoss” written by Bill Monroe. The flatpicking arrangement in this lesson is inspired by how David Grier plays “Wheel Hoss” on guitar and we’ll study how to use this flatpicking arrangement as a practice drill to work on your pick accuracy and speed across all six strings of your guitar.

Ive been waiting for you to do a David Grier style lesson! Worth the wait 🙂 thanks so much. “I’ve got the house to myself” is one of my favourite guitar records. His arrangements and picking are always so intelligent.

Really enjoying this one. I’ve got it down quite nicely, but only at a snail’s pace and it doesn’t sound anything like Devin’s. The two-stringed slide is particularly cool and now the old muscle memory is kicking in it’s pretty easy. Just need to speed it up a bit (a lot).

Great lesson, thank you sir! My only feedback on this website — when I open the new tab to read the tab (haha), it would be amazing if there were a way to view the tab sheets side by side (display two pages on the screen instead of just one) — so I don’t have to stop playing to press the next page. If this is possible to do in the future, would be amazing! (Or I could stop being lazy, and print the sheets out). Thx again Devin!
