  • Cross-picking. It's one of the greatest parts about flatpicking. It can be challenging. That's why TuneFox has a loop feature and tempo control. So you can take a small bite and work on it over and over at a tempo you can handle. There's nothing too crazy in this version of Long Journey Home, but there are a couple tricky spots so pay close attention to pick direction.

  • Billy Strings! Go catch a live show. This guy is incredible. Great band too. Check out this transcription for one of his breaks on this tune. He recorded it at almost 140 bpm! We don't have to play this arrangement that fast, but it's good to have goals! This was his first break on the recording so the melody is very pronounced. Billy learned a large amount of his Bluegrass vocabulary from his hero Doc Watson, and that is evident in his playing here. Go buy some of their albums and you will definitely hear the similarities.
