Watch the Thanks Merle online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Rhythm Guitar Greatest Hits Vol. 1

Merle Travis gave us the most important technique in rockabilly playing. His approach to guitar revolutionized guitar playing. The style came to be know as Travis picking. It was later pioneered by Chet Atkins. It consists of an alternating bass line with arpeggios or melodic fills done with the fingers. You can do this with a thumb pick or a flat pick.
