Advanced Country Guitar features Albert at his best, playing some of his all-time favorite tunes and analyzing his baffling technique in depth. Songs include "Fun Ranch Boogie," "Tiger Rag" and "That's All Right Mama." Albert discusses his hybrid Travis-picking style, chord voicings, scalar ideas, creating long seamless lines based off chord shapes, double-stop concepts, as well as analyses of his classic songs.
Virtuoso Technique focuses on the components which make up Albert's brilliant style. Songs include "Country Boy," "T-Bird to Vegas," and "Sweet Little Lisa." Using dozens of practical examples, Albert covers: classic intros and endings; chicken picking; lines using thirds, sixths and tenths; banjo-style picking; chord progressions using open strings rolls; pedal steel-type bends; and voice-leading. Also included is a section on playing with a string bender and a great jam with Albert on six-string bass.
Extra features include an interview with Albert about his experience playing at the Concert for George, a Steve Morse bonus lesson, an internet link to Albert's signature guitar, and a DVD-ROM with full PDF transcriptions of the companion books.
