The idea for this video series is to simply play a short, slightly slowed down version of a classic fingerstyle/tavis picking song or arrangement, complete with a close up camera angle and accurate tablature, so you can just watch, pause, rewind and learn! - It's the kind of video I wish existed when I was first learning this style.
Rather than a boring 20 min video with me explaining all the intricate parts of the arrangement, I feel just being able to watch it being played while following along with the tablature is a more time effective and satisfying way to learn this style of guitar playing. Having said that, let me know if you have any questions about this lesson, and please subscribe for lots more videos just like this one coming soon.
There are so many versions out there of this classic melody, but the way I play it is basically a combination of two separate thumb picking arrangements by Merle Travis and Chet Atkins, along with a few ideas here and there taken from other versions.
