Historians have written that Muhlenberg County is where the “roots” of thumb picking style of guitar playing is from.  The most notable celebrity that was born, raised, and learned to play guitar in that area was the late Merle Travis. Thumbpicking is a musical tradition for Muhlenberg County that is still going.
