Travis-Style guitar is a fingerstyle technique where you play a melody line over an independent, alternating bassline. Picking up from the simpler form taught in "Fingerstyle Guitar From Scratch," this shows you how to incorporate the melody itself to create instrumental versions of songs. Experienced players may find some challenges toward the end. Clear, funny & recommended! Spiralbound, 85 pp.
