You FGM subscribers may remember that back in the "Pioneers" issue of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine
I laid out a step-by-step flatpicking learning method that followed the chronological development of the style. This method started with a solid foundation in the rhythm guitar styles of flatpicking's early pioneers--a style that includes a liberal use of bass runs and rhythm fill licks, combined with rhythmic strums.
I have just released Volume 1 of the Eight Volume Essentials of Flatpicking
instructional series. This series follows the chronological progression of instruction that I outlined in the Pioneers issue. Volume One starts by teaching the rhythm style of the early flatpicking pioneers. If you want to learn how to add intersting bass runs and fill licks to your rhythm playing, check out this 96-page book with accompanying CD. The book and CD are available in spiral bound hardcopy form, on CD-Rom, or as a digital download.
