This is one of those solos you [I] can get in trouble in if you [I] start it and butcher it...everyone knows how it’s supposed to go.… More…

Found a really good note-by-note lesson of this solo on YouTube. (What an era!) Notated it to internalize the rhythm.… More…

This is a slip jig I've been hearing often at sessions in Chicago. I believe it's by Seán Óg Graham. The form is AABB. I love the rhythmic play in the B section.… More…

One of my favorite guitar parts from the Goo Goo Dolls' "Dizzy Up The Girl" record. The tone is so meaty, and the line, so iconic. More…

“Talk about” a great duet. I’ve been looping this “Skaggs and Rice” record to internalize some nuances of duet tenor/lead singing (and also, for enjoyment!)… More…

Had a ball learning this Scottish fiddle tune. Decided to layer a few percussive ideas and hopefully didn't get too out-there with the guitar accompaniment.… More…

Thanks for the crosspicking study, Trent! I didn't know that the top string is an upstroke — is that usually how crosspicking goes? Reminds my of a gypsy guitar exercise. More…

This arrangement lifts heavily from wonderful versions of favorite players of mine, Emil Ernebro and George Benson.… More…

My attempt at the #LyleBrewerEtude. Hardest part for me is giving full note value to the & of 4 in the moving passages.… More…

Enjoyed playing this short arrangement from John Horne. My right hand is miserable! More…

I love this short cross-voice exercise from Jan Jakut. He's got wonderful a fingerstyle approach to electric. Keeping these quarter notes held out is a bit tricky in places. I wanted to turn up the reverb… More…

Though the song is from '97, I first heard it on radio in 2014 while visiting San Antonio, TX. The intro guitar riff hooked me right away, and I loved that I couldn't find the downbeat until the bass kicked… More…
