Guitar Tricks 18: Travis Fingerpicking Lesson

Neal's got a free lesson on the Travis Fingerpicking style. This is a great technique for county or acoustic players.

The tip of the week is to get different sounds by moving your picking hand location. Close to the bridge sounds thinner and twangy, over the sound hole sound fuller and has more bass.
