Rick Ruskin’s remarkable style captures all the nuances of a band/rhythm-section and transforms the parts into amazing, in-the-pocket fingerstyle grooves like you’ve never imagined on a single guitar! Split-screen video format covers: right- and left-hand technique, walking-bass and counterpoint lines, open-voiced triads, simultaneous bass/rhythm/lead parts, pedal-steel effects, double-stop bends, harmonics, and more.
The techniques are immediately put to use in extraordinary instrumental versions of “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number,” “Georgia on My Mind,” and four originals. His meticulous analysis of each phrase is loaded with variations and insight that show how to transform the essence of any tune into dynamic arrangements of your own.
