My first post. I am male, 65 1/2 years old and and semi retired.  I have been  pick strum strumming for several years. I reached a certain point and never got much better. I found this site (and a few others)  and with the added off time my desire to do better has caught fire again. I have the basics of Travis picking pretty well worked out but when I try to do it in public I get all fumble fingered. (Fumbelfingers was my first choice for my forum name but it was already used.)I play 10 times better at home. What do I need to do to relax? I play at Church so no alcohol!
