Although originally regarded as a rhythm instrument, the Guitar has developed a solo voice all of its own in the world of Bluegrass - a voice that is revealed by Scott Nygaard in this DVD tutorial. Tunes and solos traditionally performed on the fiddle have been adapted by a generation of guitarists as the basis for their own solos within the Bluegrass sound. The style is an organic mix of fiddle tunes, banjo techniques such as crosspicking, and the Blues.

In this DVD, renowned guitarist Scott Nygaard guides you through the old-time fiddle tune Little Billy Wilson, a cross-picking arrangement of Home Sweet Home, a melodic solo on the blues song Trouble in Mind and shows you how to combine these influences when creating a solo on a bluegrass tune like East Virginia Blues. Crosspick, fiddle and blues techniques are rigorously examined and explained, giving you the best possible basis for developing your own Bluegrass solo sound.
