Travis Picking Guitar Lesson

In this lesson you'll learn a simple Travis picking pattern step-by-step. This is the first pattern I like students to learn because it's fairly easy and is a great foundation for more complex patterns. It also happens to be the same pattern used in the song Landslide by Fleetwood Mac. Because it's recognizable it's easy to tell if you're doing it right… And it's fun.

  1. Thanks Tomas for the clarification. I thought it was just user error!! Look forward to September lessons. I’ll check out the links you suggested as well.
    Cheers, Carl

  2. Tomas,
    I have enrolled in the Travis Picking lesson. I’ve clicked start course, watched the first video, and have practiced for hours. No where on my screen does it allow me to advance to another lesson, and the course tracking shows 0/0 complete & 0/0 steps. Love the opening session and want to continue. What am I doing wrong? Thanks, Carl

    1. Hey Carl…

      This is a single video lesson. Most of the Quick Wins is just one video. The 0/0 means there are no more steps. I’d prefer to eliminate the “Start Course” and the progress bar but I haven’t figured out how to do that without making these part of a longer course.

      That said there are some more fingerpicking lessons.

      This course has several different patterns:

      This lesson uses an application and variation of the course:

      There’s a link to a song lesson as well (Dust In The Wind).

      P.S. You’re going to like the Practice Sessions for September 2019 😉

      1. Instead of a link, I’ve added the lesson videos to Picking Style Of Dust In The Wind with a download for the TAB. Now that Quick Win says it has 2 lessons even though there’s actually three with the original video 🙂 Let me know how you like these Carl. I’d like to know if there’s something else you’d like to see me add in the future.
