I’m sure you know Sean Watkins and Sara Watkins from projects like Nickel Creek and I’m With Her. They’re both powerhouse musicians and their work together as Watkins Family Hour is phenomenal. Sean Watkins has always seemed like a clever guitar player to me, I think of his choices as smart and tasteful rather than boastful and brash. Fake Badge, Real Gun is a great example of this. There’s never a moment of showing off in this guitar part but it is so much fun to play.
(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.)
