Watch the Travis Rolls online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Focus On: Travis Picking
Alright, so yes I know this isn't Travis picking as it's traditionally known but it was pioneered by Merle Travis so technically it is "Travis" picking. It's also an effect that Merle uses time and time again. I love this trick. It sounds really impressive and it's great throw in before a chord change. It's basically a forward rolls played as triplet with a note on the upbeat. I'll show you three patterns that you can switch up and use over any of the chords.
