Learn Travis Picking From Scratch


Wouldn't it be nice to unlock the full potential of your guitar and play some hot tunes with the sound of a full band just by yourself? This course will show you how to do it. 

Travis Picking enables you to play the melody with your fingers, while the thumb provides a driving bass with a percussive sound. It can leave your audience in awe and asking where the second guitar came from. It's so satisfying if you can sit alone at home, playing your favourite tunes and there's nothing missing, because you can provide everything with your hands.

This style can be intimidating at first, if you don't know how to start. This is why I created this course. It will help you to achieve this goal faster and with a lasting result.
