We just discovered that David Grier’s instructional video Superchared Flatpicking is now available on DVD. This video has been around for a number of years on VHS only. For all the flatpickers out there this is a classic must have.
The video is 60 minutes long and includes David teaching 11 of his original tunes. David explains the techniques involved as well as the musical choices made on each tune. A good number of close-ups are included so you can really see what he’s doing with each hand. A tab book is included with the DVD.
The instruction level seems oriented toward intermediate or above levels to me. A beginner would probably struggle with much of it.
- Engagement Waltz
- The Old Hotel Rag
- Lone Soldier
- Smith Chapel
- Bluegrass Itch
- That’s Just Perfect
- Eye of the Hurricane
- Porkchops and Applesauce
The inclusion of Eye of the Hurricane makes this video worth having for me. That is my all time favorite David Grier tune.
The DVD is available for purchase from David’s website at <a href="“>DavidGrier.com
