Subject: RE: Flat picking + two fingers. for Marion
I have a recording of Doc Watson playing "Doc's Guitar"; is that Travis picking?

M.Ted, you didn't say that Travis picking was like flatpicking, but Rick and John did, earlier in this thread. Actually it was Rev. Gary Davis and not Merle Travis that Rick pointed out in reference to "flatpicking with thumb and index", so maybe it wasn't even Travis picking they were talking about.

Frigging complicated guitars.
