Lesson notes

*Doc’s Guitar*is a classic fingerpicking piece by Doc Watson. Typical of Doc’s style, the song is basic on one level but the challenge is to get it up to speed, blazing fast that is. The tune falls into the Travis style, using an alternating bass pattern over easy chords in the key of C, although it also uses the left thumb wrap to fret notes on the sixth string and a few hammer-ons and pull-offs.
