I'm trying to get some basics of travis picking a'la Tommy Emmanuel, learning the song he recommends, freight train and man, it feel like im learning a whole new instrument!
It's so frikking hard but the result should be / is rewarding.

Got the first of 3 pages down. Man it's hard, thumb independence is incredibly hard to develop! Try it.

Don't just play it. Feel it!

Keep going with it Jesse!! It'll be worth it in the long run!!

I'd rather have a full Bottle in front of me than a full Frontal Lobotomy!!

IT IS like learning another instrument, that thing is hard, but awesome
