Guitar Techniques - - STEVE HOWE: CLAP -

[Bar 119] We get an­other bluesy Travis pick­ing style se­quence here which re­ally helps drive the piece along. Keep­ing an even time with the pick­ing hand thumb on the bass strings is crit­i­cal here. [Bar 147] Th­ese in­ter­vals of 10ths (a 10th is a ma­jor 3rd plus an oc­tave) are a great de­vice and again hint at the Chet Atkins/Jerry Reed sound. If you know The Bea­tles’ Black­bird then you’ll know the sound of 10ths.
