The Flatpick Guitar Magazine DVD, Rice, Grier & Smith Live!, is yet another incredible offering from some of our very best flatpickers. I just can’t get enough of these things. The great David Grier, (son of banjo great, Lamar Grier), is playing here with master of taste, Kenny Smith, and with Wyatt Rice, brother of Tony and wonderful picker his own self.

I hadn’t watched this DVD for a few months, and someone on a forum mentioned it, so I hauled it out. I had forgotten how much I like a bluesy, modal, and just plain bitchin’ tune. Today, that would be the David Grier tune, Impulsive. And these guys just tear this thing up. Oh, man! So, I sat down and transcribed it today. It’s a little funky, so I doubt you’ll be trotting it out in a jam, but it just sounds and feels so good to play! And it’s not as hard as it sounds.

I have included an exported MIDI of the tab below. It sounds better than when the tab is played directly in TablEdit, but again, it is still nowhere near the actual sounds of guitars. I have included a fictitious second rhythm guitar track just to put the melody in context.
