Most often, bluegrass guitarists play the acoustic guitar, but any six-string guitar will work fine while you gather your bluegrass skills. In the beginning pages of this book, the lessons focus on getting you up to speed with your basic guitar skills, such as reading tabs, knowing basic chords, basic strum patterns, open scale shapes, solo techniques, jam etiquette, bluegrass history, and even learning how to read music. (Every song is in tab form so you can start playing these tunes right away!)
Also included are 10 of the most commonly played bluegrass songs with both a tab version and a chord version. You are encouraged to play these chords, tabbed out melodies, and jam your own solos using the open position scales from this book. This is going to be a lot of fun!
