I’ve seen reference to “Flatpicking Essentials, Vol 1” and was wondering if this is still the start of the series that people would recommend, or if something has replaced it. I’m currently about a third of the way through volume 1.

I really couldn’t make a serious study of one lesson before the next was available, esssentials I couldn’t resist getting it and starting with that material. I can’t speak for the other volumes, but if flatpickinb are anything like volume 1, it is well worth the price.

The other thing, and this is actually my fault is the speed in which clatpicking came out. I have been playing for ten years and finally have started to develop the consistency to sound “good” it’s all about the rhythm y’know.
