David Crittenden

Blues in E-flat in 3 Layers 

You'll see that the guitar contains a bass part, a "piano part" (chords), and percussion (backbeat) all in one instrument. Challenging and lots of fun!

This approach to playing is illustrated by Tuck Andress in his video ("Fingerboard Mastery") and in an article for "Guitar Player" magazine (from way back in 1988).

Check out Tuck's playing when you have a chance. You won't be sorry
