Old-Time Gospel Crosspicking Guitar Solos by Dix Bruce. Crosspicking is a stunning and beautiful guitar technique played with a flatpick. It has a unique sound (see audio samples below) that in some ways mimics a three-finger guitar or five-string banjo roll yet is completely different from either. Aimed at intermediate and advanced guitar players. These solos will make a delightful contribution to any guitarist’s repertoire.
