    Always wanted to learn travis picking.CD is helpful, Book has tab and regular notation which can be very helpful if your a beginner. Can be a tricky song to learn because of the muting and type of beat but keep trying and it will come.

  • February 21, 2009 You can play Chet !

    I have been playing since the 60's and always wanted to play some of Chet songs. I have become a fair music reader in the last 10 years. The ability to read and the books I received from sheet Music Plus with Tabs and CD I can play Chinatown...

    , My Chinatown in a couple hours. Now the problem of remembering the song without the music and getting up to speed.

  • January 17, 2009 Very good.

    Easy to get started especially with a little help from the notes above. Learn the short phrases one by one played slow. It can be done. It is possible I keep telling myself. But it takes time. Spend the time and you will be rewarded in the end.
