Q). Hi Andrew, I was hoping you could follow-up on something that my own guitar teacher couldn't explain to me all that well. He is a rock player and this question is on a finger style topic. It is called Travis Picking. There are some explanations Ive found through Google, but most of the YouTube videos I've watched are just guys playing really fast and not really explaining it very well. Hope you'll do a video on this. Thanks!

A). Thanks for writing in! Travis Picking is a fantastic pattern playing concept that can be built to high speeds and works well for many styles of music. Kansas had a huge hit called Dust in the Wind back in the '70s and last year Pearl Jam had a hit called Just Breathe - both were applying the use of Travis Picking. In the video, I cover the application of this pattern off of several string sets. I also cover a nice old time country music turnaround phrase.
