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…

I learned this solo for a gig and loved the rhythmic phrasing and rock-guitar nuances. It ultimately got cut for underscoring. Oh well!… 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…

I think of this riff every time I play a standard B minor chord at the bottom of the neck. I thought it'd be good to take a moment and actually learn it. More…

Slick gypsy blues ideas from Corsican Trio. There's something sneaky about this tune! Love the chord ideas over the minor ii - V in bar 6. Kind of looks like C#m7b5 going to F#13b9. However you get there. More…

I know from watching interviews that Benson likes to side-step to other key centers when he's playing the blues (or anything.) I noted any triads outside of this A blues above where I heard them with text.… More…
