My first job after college involved a lot of road travel, and my co-worker/travel companion wore cowboy boots, a stetson hat, a belt with a huge ornate belt buckle, and listened to loud classic country music non-stop as we drove around. After a year of this, I grew to hate it. But he never listened to bluegrass, so I really like it. I’m thinking of trying some bluegrass flatpicking for the upcoming October challenge, if I can learn it in the remaining 2 weeks. The picking speed involved seems quite daunting, not to mention the fretwork. Have any of you guys ever tried it? If so, would you use a soft pick, or a harder one?
Something like this. BTW, it looks like he’s not using standard tuning.
