Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, and Jerry Reed can only be described as the godfathers of
fingerstyle guitar. All three not only pioneered the style, they also crafted the
fundamental tools, techniques and stylings embraced by today’s modern fingerstyle
guitarists. Anyone playing or learning fingerstyle guitar today must study the work and
approaches of these three fingerstyle masters, and we can think of no quicker, or more
effective way, to accomplish that than digging into Gareth Pearson’s Travis, Atkins &
Welsh guitar phenomenon Gareth Pearson is already considered a virtuoso in the guitar
world. He has already developed a distinctive style to his playing that has earned him
the greatest accolades from world renowned players and music critics; he has been called
a genius by Jan Akkerman, and Tommy Emmanuel was inspired to write a song about him which he named The Welsh Tornado. We are very proud to welcome Gareth to the family with his first TrueFire course, the Travis, Atkins & Reed Guidebook.
As you progress through the Guidebook, Gareth will demonstrate and teach 16 specific
concepts and techniques that are signature to Merle Travis, Chet Atkins, and Jerry Reed:
Travis Chord Shapes, Fretting With Thumb, Travis Right Thumb, Chord Turnarounds, the
Giddy Up Uh Lick, Travis Index Finger,, Travis Fast Lead Lines, Travis Banjo Rolls,
Travis Heavy Rolls, Heavy Roll & Bend, Atkins Groove Pattern, Open String Banjo Scale,
Banjo Roll Single Lead, Atkins Triplet Roll, The Claw, and Chord Pull-Off Licks.
You’ll apply all of those techniques and concepts across a series of 8 fingerstyle
studies (see descriptions from Gareth below). Gareth will first perform the study and
then break it down for you section-by-section, technique-by-technique.
