The Chet Atkins/Merle Travis Style Picking Primer
In this series of eight lessons, Andy Gurley will introduce you to the picking styles of Chet Atkins and Merle Travis. First up is the basic picking hand motion, then you'll start developing the use of your thumb. Adding finger syncopation is next, then we'll examine a progression using our basic pattern. Then it's time to develop independence with your fingers and thumb, and we'll conclude with some moveable shapes and final thoughts.
