These free bluegrass guitar tabs are written out in my unique tab system that I invented after teaching guitar for fifty years. Instead using numbers on the strings to represent the fret that you play, I put the name of the note that you play on the string.
This method does require you to learn the names of the eight notes of the scale, and where to find them on your guitar. This may seem like a “royal pain,” but trust me, this will give your music a BIG BOOST. You absolutely need to know the name of the notes you are playing, instead of just the number.
Let’s say you want to play a G run, for example. As you probably already know, a G run ends on a G note. If you know where to find a G note, you can make up your own G run. If you don’t, you’ll be running to the internet every time you want to play not just a G run, but any run.
Not to try to sell you a book, or anything, but I do suggest you check out my recent book, Flatpicking Guitar for the Complete Ignoramus!, which teaches forty-one great bluegrass tunes, using my original tab.
You look skeptical.
OK. I’ll offer you this guarantee. If you try the book, and either don’t like it, or don’t get anything out of it, return it, and I’ll send you back your money. Just tell me how much you paid for it. Fair enough?
