“With the crosspicking technique, you’ll play things that make you stand out at the jam session without learning new chord voicing or melodies!”
With some new CROSSPICKING PATTERNS in your toolbox you'll bring NEW LIFE to the stuff you already know.
Learn how to spice up both your MELODY and RHYTHM playing with the cross-picking technique.
You can even play and make SOLO ARRANGEMENTS for your favorite songs.
You have probably heard about it and also felt a bit confused about the terminology. We will give you a quick recap of the cross-picking history and mention a few critical players and how the art has evolved.
“You’ll be prepared for the next jam session when the name dropping starts.” 🙂

"The Academy really has made me a better mandolin player already, so I can really recommend it to anyone!"
