Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar Volume 1 (formerly titled Basic Bluegrass Runs on Guitar Volume 1): Tired of just strumming your guitar? Wish you could vary the tedium of the boom-chunk, boom-chunk? Well, let’s add some guitar runs to your playing! And what, you might ask, are guitar “runs”? Guitar runs are notes played on the bass strings of the guitar that help you move gracefully from one chord to another. Thus, we have G runs, and C runs, and D runs. And all kinds of other runs.

We start with simple, easy-to-hear runs in the Key of G. We learn the runs one at a time, and work each run into a familiar song. That way you can get the hang of it.

Then we move to the Key of C for more runs and more songs. Along the way, we learn an F chord and the “rocking bass” notes you use with it, bluegrass style. Through it all, we stick with easy, three-chord songs.

If you can make G, C, and D, and play a few songs using these chords, this DVD is for you. Also for folks who have been playing a while but don't yet do any runs. A great way to take your rhythm guitar playing to the next level. No Tab.
