I have already learned the song. What Im asking is Dust in the wind have a variation of a travis picking style? I can already travis pick, and I know dust in the wind is not played exactly in that style. So can someone tell me the name of the picking style just so i can know what it is called

I'm not the best authority on the subject, since I don't know that song, and I'm not an expert on travis picking, but all travis picking really is is picking a melody with the fingers while the thumb plays a bassline. If the song involves polyphonic melody and basslines, then I'd say the answer to your question is yes.

Travis picking usually refers to a type of playing associated with country, rockabilly, and occasionally jazz. I would just consider that song to be plain ol' fingerstyle. I don't really see why it matters what it's called, though.
