I'm posting this for a thread about Travis style guitar on a banjo. I play fingerstyle guitar and have experimented with a more guitar-esque style to make my different breaks more interesting. Since I've done that, I have listened to Eddie Adcock...looks like he got to it first. I think a few of his licks might have even crept into my playing. I screwed up a few times but don't feel like re-recording it right now. Key of C in Open G.
