Subject: RE: Flat picking + two fingers. for Marion
No, Les, that isn't what we're talking about(though that is a technique that is very useful)--We-re talking about a particular style of guitar playing that uses a strident bass(often but not always alternating) played with the thumb, and chords and single note melodies and fills played with the index finger--The Grandmaster of this style was Merle Travis--and it is much discussed(at least by certain sinister types) on the Mudcat Forum--
