Overview

Steve Kaufman is considered an exceptional guitar flatpicker among his peers and fans who have enjoyed his performances and recordings for years. In this program, he demonstrates ways to play complex chord progressions, add "bass walks," and even master the famous Lester Flatt "G run." Kaufman also discusses how viewers can develop what he calls "muscle memory" that allows them to keep up with other musicians when the performance tempo increases. He plays a variety of tunes, including "Wabash Cannonball," "Blackberry Blossom," and "Sally Goodin," while carefully explaining how he elicits such incredible bluegrass sounds from his guitar.
