Jerry Reed’s The Mad Russian In Acoustic Guitar Magazine
Craig Dobbins contributes the feature lesson on Jerry Reed's guitar style in Acoustic Guitar Magazine’s May 2011 issue.
The article goes beyond just an incredible tab of The Mad Russian. After the introduction by Jim Ohlschmidt, Dobbins’s lesson starts with a brief explanation of Reed-style thumbpicking. He then focuses on different aspects of that style: clawin’, country counterpoint, clawhammer, swarmin’, flamenco flourishes, and electric style. There are fourteen examples tabbed out to demonstrate each one as well. There is a note on alternate tunings and, to take it over the top, a sidebar article on the guitars and amplification Reed used. As John Knowles so aptly described it, “It’s a great resource.”
The online version of the article, including MP3 audios of all the examples, is available at http://www.acousticguitar.com.
