Again, we'll use no chords. We want to give your brain some "pure" Travis info so join me in this simple exercise designed to help you quickly build muscle memory in your right hand. You want to be able to pick it in your sleep!

Using no chords, we'll play 2 bars in the "low" position, 2 bars in the "middle" position, 2 bars in the "high" position, back for 2 bars in the "middle" position, then start over at the "bottom" on the "low" position.
