In a wide-ranging and detailed session, Tony Rice demonstrates his impeccable technique and provides thoughtful insights into a variety of guitars skills, from tuning up to improvising solos. He discusses the powerful influences of Clarence White and Doc Watson on his early development, slows down his signature licks and show how he produces his trademark crosspicking sound.
- Tony has geared this lesson for aspiring players at all levels, teaching both relatively easy pieces as well as more challenging ones. These include bluegrass and country songs: THE LAST THING ON MY MIND - BURY ME BENEATH THE WILLOW - NINE POUND HAMMER - WILDWOOD FLOWER, Appalachian fiddle tunes: STONY LONESOME - BILLY IN THE LOWGROUND - LITTLE SADIE - SALT CREEK - JERUSALEM RIDGE and Tony´s uniquely beautiful ballad arrangements: SHENANDOAH and DANNY BOY.

The brothers then finish the set with an impromptu version of the classic I AM A PILGRIM.
