A collection of 16 hot, intermediate-level flatpicking guitar solos from five of the leading exponents of this technique. David Bromberg is known as the leader of one of the most successful acoustic bands of the 1970's and 1980's. The Kitchen Girl, a fine Kentucky tune, is an example of Bromberg's good taste in choosing material. Dick Fegy is a master picker of fiddle tunes and is the most heavily-featured player in the collection. San Francisco Bay area favorite Eric Thompson crosses old-time with traditional Irish playing. Michael Aumen contributes three tunes associated with Clarence White and a very interesting version of Soldier's Joy, with a flair that pushes the limits of the hot country style. Richard Lieberson is a fine bluegrass picker who has developed a convincing swing jazz style with exciting results, and a touch of humor. Written in notation and tablature. Includes access to online audio featuring performances of all the tunes in the book.
