Freight Train – Travis Style Solo
Branching out into different styles of finger-picking is a great way to spice up your playing on the banjo, and the flagship of finger-picking is “Travis Style”. Named after legendary guitarist Merle Travis, this approach uses the thumb to create bouncy bass lines, and then adds the melody on top creating a full orchestral sound. And if you’re going to learn Travis Picking, then there is no more classic a song than “Freight Train” by Elizabeth Cotton.
