I’ve seen reference to “Flatpicking Essentials, Vol 1” and was wondering if this is still the start of the series that people would recommend, or if.

The only reason I would hesitate to recommend this series is I’m ashamed to say we don’t actually own any of the material. It is more than just exercises, it gives you an in depth look at the history of flatpicking and the importance of solid rythym playing.
If you have any specific questions about one of the books, let me know. I copied all of the cd’s to the hard drive and the run them through transcribe! Tim May is a first class player.

I hope to also be able to flatpiccking through vol 2, but I’m a hard learning. Volume 1 will take you through various “boom chucks”, adding notes between chords i. This evolution is kind of how the book is arranged. Mostly me, of course!

I’m looking forward to working my way slowly but surely through the series. The other thing, and this is actually my fault is the speed in which they came out. I’ve ordered this 2 pack, thanks for pointing me to it.
Want to hide these Google ads? Flatpicklng started my flatpicking journey with it and I made huge strides quickly.
I can’t speak for the other volumes, but if they are anything like volume 1, it is well worth the price. Danny, I am a big fan of the series.
Volume 2 is really excellent too I bought them as a two pack. I recently purchased volume 1 of the series and IMHO it was very well done. Find all posts by WonderMonkey. I find these interesting to read, as well as work through.

After all that is rhythm. I have been playing for ten years and finally have started to develop the consistency to sound “good” it’s all about the rhythm y’know. I spent time with each lesson before moving on. I really couldn’t make a serious study of one lesson before the next was available, and I couldn’t resist getting it and starting with that material.
I’m also working through Flatpicking Essentials Vol. I like Dan’s stuff because I find it well written, well produced, durable materials.
Does anyone have any experience with these, and are they any good? I’ve seen reference to “Flatpicking Essentials, Vol 1” and was wondering if this is still the start of the series that people would recommend, or if something eessentials replaced it. If you have any specific questions, let me know.
Last edited by WonderMonkey; at I did almost all of volume 1 and half of volume 2 then started on Artistworks. Try to play along with the recording as much as possible. Depends on where you see your playing going.

So the question still stands, is this series still a recommended standard or is there something that you would put in it’s place? I don’t think you are a hard learner; these basic skills take years to perfect. I would suggest using a metronome a lot. Find a Teacher Take your playing to the next level with the help of a local or online flatpicked guitar teacher. I’m currently about a third of the way through volume 1.
The time now is So this thread sent me back to FE this evening and what a great series it is! Originally Posted by innocent75 That is the same route I took. Walking up or down to a chord, g runs, and then into different styles of rhythm playing. Helps you find the groove.
