Bluegrass Guitar Instruction

Learn to play bluegrass guitar with our great selection of bluegrass guitar books, videos and DVD's. The guitar was originally just a rhythm instrument in bluegrass music. George Shuffler of the Stanley Brothers was one of the first to make the guitar a lead instrument with his trademark crosspicking style. Tony Rice took the lead bluegrass guitar to new heights with his dazzling lead playing with J.D. Crow and the New South. You too can learn to play lead or rhythm bluegrass guitar!

Bluegrass Guitar Books

Bluegrass guitar tab (short for tablature) is a musical notation system that has been around for many years. Unlike standard notation, that depicts only the note name, bluegrass guitar tab shows you which string to play, which fret to hold down on the left hand, as well as other information such as slides, pull-offs and hammer-ons. All of our bluegrass guitar tab books are written by highly qualified instructors. Don't waste your time on questionable free bluegrass guitar tabs.
