I still remember this as one of the first flatpicking guitar albums that I purchased and was totally amazed at the speed and style of Norman Blake, combined with the expert silky smooth style of master flatpicker Tony Rice. This CD contains some of the best flatpicking music you will hear anywhere as only Blake and Rice can play it.
If you love some of the greatest flatpicking ever, be sure to pick up this album. It combined 2 of the best flatpicker's of all time. The guitar picking is great as are the vocals. You even get a good dose of Norman's Mandolin in some of the songs. Be sure to add Blake and Rice to your bluegrass collection

The First Break:
New River Train Beginner Tab - The First Break: This beginner version of New River Train is tabbed out in true Norman Blake tradition. It contains both lead and rhythm chords that give this break a unique Blake quality. Master this first break and you will have a much easier time with the second or the intermediate break as we only add fill notes to make it the second version.
Beginners beware of the last couple of measures as this is a blues run of eighth notes that brings you well into intermediate flatpicking territory.
Another thing you should work toward is playing the double and triple chord notes with a brush type picking style and work on the timing too.
The Second Break:
New River Train Intermediate Tab - The Second Break: As mentioned in the first break, this second or intermediate break uses the first break as the foundation for most of the notes you will see here. What makes this much harder to play is the unrelenting strings of eighth notes in the runs, which will really tax your right hand strength. Just start very slowly and work up to speed and you will impress yourself with how fluent this break sounds. Definitely a great intermediate flatpicking guitar piece.
The Third Break:
New River Train Advanced Tab - The Third Break: This last break will definitely be a challenge as we are getting into the Tony Rice style of playing, which is up the neck very blues type of playing and at this speed, you will do quite a bit of finger stumbling at first to try to mimic the Rice playing style.
