Before we roll up our sleeves and start digging into the next level of Travis picking, let's briefly talk about the gear that I'm using for the examples. Once again I'll be using my Martin-style VKV steel-string acoustic, and I'll be getting the sound you hear in the video from a combination of the overhead mic that I'm also talking through and the built-in pickup system in my guitar. You can play these examples with your fingers, a regular flat pick or a thumb pick.
