David Grier is one of the most interesting flatpicking guitarists around. His style is unique, focusing on acrobatic contest style arrangements of classic fiddle tunes. If you’re looking for a good example of solo flatpicking David Grier is your guy. His variations on traditional crosspicking approaches like 4-note patterns and string skipping have solidified his influence on bluegrass guitarists everywhere.
(Advanced guitar tabs generally include a very ornamented version of the melody, chord markings above (with extra extensions and variations), kick-offs, tags, and improvisation that drifts far from the melody at hand. Expect to come across hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides and more in all kinds of combinations as well as syncopation, triplets and other rhythmic challenges. These tabs are excellent if you want to get inside the head of another improviser and explore the choices that an advanced flatpicker might consider.)
