Thread Name: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Subject: RE: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
..very interesting article. However, I subscribe to Guitar Player magazine and seem to have missed this artice. Is it recent?

This article has given me some ideas for Christmas gifts. My dad listens almost exclusively to "Travis style" thumbpicking, and Merle's anthology or Chet's biography would be an excellent gift for any thumbpicker aficionado. Thanks, dude.

P.S. A word of warning to travelers passing through Muhlenberg County, Kentucky: If you get pulled over for a traffic violation and you have a flat pick in your pocket, the fine is doubled. Carry a thumbpick, though, and you may just get off with a warning. ;-) Happy Trails.
