Travis-Style guitar is a fingerstyle technique where you play a melody line over an independent, alternating bassline. The second half of Fingerstyle Guitar from Scratch to teaching the simpler form of Travis-Picking, using picking patterns to accompany the voice, but here you learn to incorporate the melody itself to create instrumental versions of songs. Think Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, Leo Kottke, John Fahey and Mississippi John Hurt, to name a few of the many practitioners. Experienced players may find some challenges toward the end.
These books offer a steady flow of information, rather than the Hit-and-Run School of Thought. No gaps, no loose spots, no quantum leaps. The pages have been designed to be inviting to the eye, and not clogged with information. Paragraphs are short and the margins are contoured so that the eye is swept along from line to line. Thoughts and sentences never spill over onto the next page. Instead of relying on Standard Music Notation, these great books emphasize the language of the guitar itself, Fretboard Diagrams: simply pictures of which strings to hold down at which frets. Both Tablature and Standard Notation are presented when they are useful. Also included are straightforward educational activities along with easy-to-read graphics. These books lie flat when you place them on a table or music stand.
