DVD - Travis Picking for Beginners

by Fred Sokolow

Travis' brilliant style inspired Chet Atkins and generations of country, folk, bluegrass & 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. 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. Note/tab booklet included as a PDF file on the DVD. 92 min.
