Doug takes a break from finger-style guitar to bring us a few lessons in flatpicking. In addition to a terrific arrangement of a Celtic reel, you’ll learn a little more about timing and ornamentation, specifically the staccato triplet.
Tom, who goes by Noteboat on our forum pages, is already pretty well known and respected by our forum members or those who’ve bought and read his book on theory. He now contributes a terrific piece on how to practice keeping the beat. Staying in rhythm is probably one of the most important things a guitarist (or any musician) can do and Tom’s article will help you to get better at this.
