This is the official site of guitarist Randy Buckner. I play the Merle Travis style of thumbpicking guitar, and teach guitar, banjo, ukulele, and mandolin at Hoover Music in Springfield, Mo. I teach Travis-style guitar via the internet, and in workshops such as the Merle Travis Thumbpicking Weekend at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, AR. My latest album, “Thumbin’ the Strings,” was released September, 2017. To learn about me, my lessons, or watch some of my videos, click the “About” tab. You’ll find information about my CD under the “My Music” tab. Thanks for stopping by!
I use Apex Hyperelliptical strings exclusively on my guitars. They’re designed with players in mind, and sound great!
