Tuck Raisor, Kentucky Thumbpickers Association


Tuck Raisor

Tuck Raisor, President of the Kentucky Thumbpickers Association (KTPA), helped to establish this club nearly ten years ago. The KTPA is an international club which includes distinguished members such as the Smith Brothers, Chet Atkins, Tommy Emmanuel, and Joe Edwards. As a young boy Tuck became interested in the guitar style of thumbpicking when he heard Merle Travis play a unique style combining melody and rhythm at the same time. He learned to thumbpick the guitar while serving in the army in 1953.
