First of all let's repeat everything we learned on acoustic guitar and transfer all of that to our electric guitar.

First, we had our basic Travis Picking pattern of the open E-chord. Some of these were tough to do on the acoustic, so we simplified the pattern quite a bit. But on the electric it's actually doable. The basic right hand pattern (minus all the embellishments) also works for all the open chords with the root on the E string as well as the A string.
