Orrin Star's "Hot Licks for Bluegrass Guitar" (Oak Publications) has long been one of the all-time best-selling books on bluegrass flatpicking. The first full-fledged guide to bluegrass guitar licks, this book contains hundreds of individual examples, providing not only an up-to-date survey of flatpicking licks in general but also insights into the nitty-gritty of how the licks are actually used.
Now, for the first time, every lick in this exhaustive survey has been compiled, in order, on two Compact Disks. Orrin has painstakingly recorded each one in a way that make them easy to be learned and then applied to any bluegrass song or instrumental in your repertoire. These CDs will provide a powerful resource and learning tool for flatpickers at all levels, and we consider them to be an essential addition to every bluegrass picker's library.
