This updated course – the 30th Anniversary Edition featuring online book and expanded online audio (140+ minutes!) – is, by acclaim, the best teaching method available for the popular alternating-bass fingerpicking style, commonly called “Travis Picking.” It contains a comprehensive study of the basic patterns and myriad variations of the style, taking you through your first two solo pieces!
The online audio is exceedingly user friendly, with all of the examples played at length at both slow- and performance-speed. This Notation/TAB/Audio package is great for both beginning fingerpickers and more advanced players who want to learn this style. Fourteen pieces in all, arranged in gradually increasing degrees of difficulty.
Mark spent several years in his twenties developing this teaching method. This perennial best seller has sold six-figure numbers over the years, and is heard in countless professional recordings and onstage everywhere!
