In this guitar lesson, we’ll take a close look at a flatpicking break in the style of Kenny Smith. This is a fairly advanced guitar break that will really help you build up some strength in your fretting hand. The hardest part is the “double pull-off” that happens a couple times throughout the arrangement. Before you begin, you’ll need to tune your A string a whole step down to the note G for a tuning of EGDGBE. We also have our capo on the 4th fret. Good luck!
Be sure to out Kenny Smith and his wife Amanda Smith on their website kenny-amandasmith.com where you can learn about their upcoming live shows.
If you like the sound of my guitar in this lesson, I’m playing on a Martin D-18 with an ambertone finish and I’m using Woodtone Country Series acoustic guitar strings.
