I've been practicing alot of travis picking recently and have the problem that I simply don't know enough songs that use it to practice it as much as I want. I've already got the basic ones down like "Dust in the Wind" "Landslide"(smashing pumpkins version of course and a few beatlest songs like Julia and Dear Prudence down, but i just need a list of some other songs that use Travis picking, any suggestions would be great.

Bob Dylan - "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright", "Buckets Of Rain"

travis is method of finger picking named after Merle Travis, us mainly use your thumb index and middle finger and there is a steady base throughout the song. if you want to see what it is or how it sounds listen to some of the songs we posted
