    His arpeggio picking patterns are also the sort of thing that works well with a DWPS let hand. Is fun to play those examples with them.
    The Van Eps student I studied with (or at least took lessons from, as I was not very diligent) was a disciple of the 7-string finger-style Van Eps, not the early flatpicking Van Eps. He even had a Gretsch Van Eps model 78-string guitar.
