  • June 01, 2007 Marcel Rocks!

    While not for the beginner, Marcel Dadi's skillful interpretations of the famous Merle Travis style of figerpicking will lighten the hearts, and inspire the fingers, of many players to new musical heights. Even seasoned players will find this product worthwhile. I've played the guitar for some 35 years...

    , generally strumming and flat picking, and rather poorly at that. Since starting the Travis style technique, I now sound more like the player I always wanted to be. I'd encourage any player to adapt and adopt this style!
