  • Hand PositionRight-Hand PositionThe Travis Style

    Merle Travis produced his char-acteristic sound by muting thc bass strings with the heel of his right hand (Fig.1). This technique produces a beaudful effect but seriously reJuces the angl; between the Thumb ",iJ tn" .t ing.,making the guitarist dependcnt on a trum'T'ick. I prefer to klep the right hand free from the iop or ne guitar (Fig. z).This position allows the full sound of the guitar to projec;, etmi-nates thumbpick dependence, and provides atechnique that is more easily adapted to other styles of piaying.
