In this lesson you’re going to learn the basics of that definitive country guitar sound, chicken pickin’. Once you have the basic technique under your fingers you can put it into practice by learning a short solo that I’ve put together. Find the music/tab below (Download here, if you like). I’ve been meticulous in adding all the picking hand directions to the tab, as it’s crucial you get this right. Notes are played either with a downstroke of the pick, or with the middle finger (indicted by the letter m above the tab number).
