One of my all time favorite performers, Steven Curtis Chapman, performed his new song at the Ryman in honor of all who have served. The song is entitled ‘We Remember’ and features his wonderful voice and great lyrics, but I am completely fascinated by his style of playing. SCC is a fantastic guitar player and his acoustic work is inspiring but I have never noticed him using a flat pick and combining finger style at the same time. (Check out the video link below)
My Dad was an amazing picker in Chet style and I have been around some great pickers through my life but I have never seen someone use a flat pick & finger style combo. Have any of you all ever seen or done this? Very impressive stuff.
Here is the one he recorded in a more private environment… likely his home. Although it doesn’t show his picking style as well, I enjoy it as it shows his ability in an unmixed environment. First class all the way.
There are also some really cool licks in this video too, so it’s worth the time to watch it.
