The three most important elements in playing bluegrass guitar today are rhythm, runs, and leads. Many of the great bluegrass guitar players also happen to be great vocalists, and there’s a direct correlation between the rhythm patterns they choose and the songs they sing.
In Stephen Mougin’s Bluegrass Rhythm Evolution, you’ll focus on the evolution of bluegrass rhythm patterns, from the founders of the genre in the forties, to today’s contemporary artists. Stephen designed the curriculum to broaden your palette of rhythms to help you select the appropriate pattern for the bluegrass songs you play.
Stephen Mougin is one of the most respected Jack-of-All-Trades in acoustic music. A touring guitarist currently with Sam Bush; an accomplished songwriter for dozens of top bluegrass bands; a sought-after producer with his own studio, Dark Shadows; and a widely respected vocal, guitar and mandolin teacher. We’re thrilled to welcome Stephen to the family with his first TrueFire course, Bluegrass Rhythm Evolution.
”There’s no “one way” to play bluegrass rhythm guitar. Typical bluegrass rhythm is performed out of a G, C, or D shape, using a capo to access additional keys. We’re going to explore some interesting components in the style of several players. Keep in mind that none of these folks played exactly like this all of the time, or even all of the way through a song. Bluegrass Rhythm Evolution will be a enlightening glimpse into their rhythm playing and hopefully, will encourage you to dig deeper.”
All of the performance studies are tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes. You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop and/or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, Stephen includes all of the backing tracks for you to work with on your own.
Grab your guitar and let’s play some bluegrass with Stephen Mougin!
