I am looking to create some dialog hopefully. I joined these groups as did many of us to learn from others and to pass on what I know as well.
I am not new to the guitar but stayed mostly in the chord strumming arena for many many years. I am trying to break out of that. One of the areas that I am looking at building my skills in is flatpicking. I realize that playing with others is the best way to learn and I do that. But what I would like is for some of you that are on the flatpicking path to jot down some thoughts on the best way to progress. In other words:
1) what specific things/lessons should one practice and in what order?
2) are there must have books or sites that are considered the best or the bible?
3) anyone in Alpharetta/Roswell/Duluth GA interested in some porch playing?
