In 1988, Brad “Buster” B. Jones entered Guitar Player Magazine’s International Guitar Competition with his own composition, “Back Porch Boogie,” and a rendition of “Lime-house Blues.” He entered on a whim, at the last minute, using a $1.50 K-Mart cassette tape and a boom box. There were almost 900 entries, and he won on the first ballot. In 1990, he won the National Fingerpicking Championship at Winfield, Kansas. In the last years he has performed with Chet Atkins, Tommy Jones, Marcel Dadi, Thom Bresh, and John Knowles. He is a regular at the annual conventions in Nashville and France of the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society. In this second volume of Fingerstyle Guitar From The Ground Up, Buster B. Jones continues to show you all the tricks of his trade so that you ll be able to fingerpick in the style of Merle Travis and Chet Atkins.

Split-screen techniques are featured so that you can study and clearly see what each hand is playing. You ll learn: More right hand patterns; Right hand rolls; More chord movements and Fretboard logic. A detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included.
