A breakdown puts your guitar soling out on a limb, and this video gives a couple examples of how to make the most of that time in the spotlight. Breakdowns are high risk, high reward territory!

These licks are taken from a Grammy winning instrumental called “Cluster Pluck” where Brad Paisley, James Burton, Albert Lee, Redd Volkeart, John Jorgenson, Vince Gill, Steve Wariner, and Brent Mason trade off dizzying guitar acrobatics. You will get the style and muscle memory of 8 different country guitar legends into your own hands.

A new Cluster Pluck video will be released every month until the song is completed!
