The Tony Rice Style: Modern Bluegrass Master

Tony Rice fuses many elements into one distinctive style. This series of lessons will take a look at some of the concepts used in his style: jazz-influenced chords, syncopated and varied rhythm playing, unique use of pentatonic scales, and chords in lead lines and chord substitutions. We'll put them all together into a solo that exploits all of the techniques.
