Salt Creek: Crosspicking Guitar Lesson

G’day! This guitar lesson is in 2 parts; first we’ll be working on some crosspicking technique and several exercises to help improve accuracy; in the second part of this lesson we’ll apply the technique to an arrangement of the picking session standard, Salt Creek, out of capo 2 in the key of A.

Recommended listening for the technique is Dan Crary’s album, Bluegrass Guitar. He is a master at crosspicking and I have certainly been influenced by his playing.

The video lesson for Part A is available free below. The full lesson for the remainder of the arrangement is available to members, which:

  • Breaks down the solos at a slow tempo;
  • Includes crosspicking exercises to develop technique;
  • Up close video of both left & right hands & TAB on screen;
  • PDF tab for both Salt Creek and the crosspicking exercises;
  • Picking direction.

Full membership only $10/month and gives you access to all video lessons, tabs & charts!

The TAB and crosspicking exercise sheet only is also available to purchase separately below which includes picking direction:
