Having created the first day-long workshop devoted exclusively to rhythm playing, renowned flatpicker Orrin Star has helped guitarists around the country improve their rhythm skills. This 95-minute video offers an enhanced version of Orrin's live workshop, featuring additional bass runs and songs, a new section on playing with other guitarists, and a guest appearance by Kenny Smith.

Starting with the basics and working up from there, it will show you:

a full range of strums and bass runs
how and when to apply them
the key to killer bass runs (rest strokes)
the ‘cool' chord forms
how to approach faster songs

"Bluegrass guitarists have developed some of the most potent and interesting rhythm techniques ever heard—but they are seldom taught or discussed. My workshop takes a hands-on, detailed and entertaining look at them." "Brooklyn Bluegrass Maestro" Orrin Star is an award-winning guitar, banjo and mandolin player. The 1976 National Flatpicking Champion, he has toured and recorded widely, appeared on A Prairie Home Companion and is the author of "Hot Licks for Bluegrass Guitar."
