Chicken Picken’ and Country Guitar Basics

Chicken Picken’ is a guitar style of quick country runs and banjo style rolls. A mix of bends, double stops, slapping and popping the strings and a twangy guitar is standard for ay country tune from the beginning. These are a few licks from a youtube video I found that goes over a little lesson. Definitely something worth working on to help your picking hand and your scales. A pretty basic progression for country songs to solo over is A-D-E, which is found in a ton of hits from Lynard Skynard to Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Alan Jackosn, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens and so many more.
