Travis Picking for Beginners (DVD)

"Merle Travis' brilliant fingerpicking style inspired Chet Atkins and generations of country, folk, bluegrass and rock guitarists. Travis picking is a very complete use of the guitar: when you play steady, alternating bass notes with your thumb and pick melodies with your fingers you're playing lead, rhythm and bass all by yourself.

But how do you keep that thumb-bass independent so it doesn't get derailed when your fingers pick the melody? Fred makes it easy for beginners or intermediate guitarists by breaking it all down and taking each song step by step. First you learn the melody, then add the bass, then add the syncopation that makes it swing. Split screen versions of the songs with closeups of both hands will help you learn Travis style, and a detailed tab/music instructional booklet is included as a PDF file on the DVD.
