Okay, we've worked on our hands separately, let's combine the chord progression with the basic Travis pick pattern. Our RIGHT hand wants to be sure to use the correct basses for each chord, is trying to stay in position, and is executing the timing for our Travis pick correctly. Meanwhile we want to be sure the LEFT hand is making good use of the chord connections we discussed earlier, since your right hand is only as good as your left hand, and vice versa.

I'll count us off and take us on a nice mellow ride through the chord progression a couple of times. If you are a beginner, you can use this version to sing and play the whole song. When you are familiar with the overall patterns of chords and picking, feel free to try it with the vocal.
