Master Class: Paul Pigat
Introduction to Travis Picking and the Fingerstyle of Chet Atkins
DATE: Sunday, August 12th, 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Travis picking can be a challenge to say the least. Basically it’s playing guitar like a stride piano. That being said there are a few simple steps that can get you going right away and on the path to enjoying this robust fingerstyle technique. We will look at thumb and finger independence, chord voicing, simple pattern work and the use of synchopations to achieve that classic sound.
