Rockin' Chair - Randy Buckner "Travis Style" arrangement

Postby Bucknerguitar » Sun Sep 18, 2016 4:52 pm

Hey all!

Sorry I've been MIA, I'm working on a new solo album that's inspired by the instrumental albums of Merle Travis.

This video is my Travis-style arrangement of the classic Hoagy Carmichael song, "Rockin' Chair" - one of the songs from the album. The recording process is almost done, with 10 of the 12 songs recorded.

The audio could be better, but with a little practice, I'll get it figured out.

Hope you all like the song.

P.S. - I'm still plotting and planning my Travis-style chord book. Now that I have a lap top computer, the process will be speeding up.

It's good to be back.

Happy Thumbpicking,

Randy Buckner

I've said it before and I'll say it again "I love that Merle Travis sound". Good job and nice arrangement.

sincerely,

Clean as a whistle, Randy. Really good pickin'... I could never figure out how you Travis pickers keep those other right hand fingers to "stay home" on the pick guard??? Amazing amount of music with only a thumb and one finger!

Hey, will you be at the Travis Center this coming weekend? Hope so...

Thanks for posting that Randy! Great Pickin'! LMark

Edit: P.S. I put it on "Loop" I'm liking it so much. Thanks again; keep up the good work.
