Travis Picking

Two fun lessons in finger picking with the guitar. These two lessons by David Hodge make learning to finger pick fun and remarkably easy to do. I was quite amazed at how simple this technique was and how with a little practice I could start playing in a way I really didn't think I was capable of doing to be honest.

Add A Pinch - Basic Travis Finger Picking Tutorial (part 2)

Hodge has quite a few lessons at Guitar Noise and all his lessons are interesting and fun

Good quote. For some reason it reminds me of the Bob Dylan quote: "Half the people can be part right all of the time, an'
Some of the people can be all right part of the time,
But all the people can't be all right all of the time." Which he attributes to Lincoln.
Cool blog.
