Only useful if you know lots of chord fingerings already
on March 28, 2015
This book is almost useful, but comes far short of being a great teaching tool. My biggest complaint is that the book provides no chord fingerings for you in any of the songs or exercises - a glaring oversight considering that a large part of successful Travis fingerpicking is understanding how to adapt fingerings to maximize common tones between chords.
If you don't know the best fingering for, say, a G/D chord and A/D chord off the top of your head, you'll have to stop practicing from the book and look up the chord fingering online. Very frustrating!
