To start, you will need a thumbpick to sound exactly like Chet Atkins. You may play this without one, but Chet was rarely seen without his thumb pick (finger picks are picks meant to go on each finger, this is the "thumb" finger pick). It gives the palm-muted bass line a crisp punch.
Your other pick hand fingers should relax over the strings in order to play the melody on different strings. I suggest using at least two fingers in starting this style.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
