Thread Name: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
Subject: RE: The Evolution of Country Fingerpicking
I too am a big fan of Mother Maybelle and the Carter Family but I think Kinnzle and Justa are talking about the origins of a specific style variously known as Thumbpicking, Kentucky Thumbpicking, Travis Style, Choke Style (a new term to me) and possibly other names. Justa has recorded in this style and has even composed his Mudcat Rag in this style especially dedicated to this Web site and its members. You can hear that tune on the Mudcat Orchid CD.
