How to do the Travis Pick

Many friends have asked me over the years, “HOW DO YOU DO THAT?”

So I finally decided to put this up.

Now I just send them the link!

To understand the pattern even better, here’s a little illustration (download pdf here) to see it written out. Just pretend the lines are the strings (seen from above), and the dots show where to pluck. The letters at the bottom show which finger does the plucking, and the dotted lines show the beats (One and Two and Three and Four).

Hope that helps!
