I was wondering if anyone could tell me how Doc Watson does a trill with only his thumb and one finger? I saw him explain it many years ago but have forgotten how to do it.

thanks

duke

HE does it easily - Might be a bit harder for mere mortals !

I've never seen or heard Doc do a trill but, in my experience, trills are made on a guitar by hitting the string once with the picking hand, and then hammering on and pulling off a couple of frets above the hit note - but using the fretting hand. so, it's not a case of using a thumb and finger or not - you could do it with just a pick - the technique is in the fretting hand.
