Are You Ready To Discover The Amazing Style And Techniques From One Of The Greatest Country Guitar Players Of All Time?
The Absolute Most In depth Study Of The Amazing Picking Style Of Brad Paisley Anywhere On The Planet!
A Whopping 7 Disc Guitar Instructional Video Set!
Ken Carlson Here,
Over the past couple years I've had many, many requests to do a video lesson on the guitar picking style of Brad Paisley. So, I finally decided to tackle this project, and 5 months later, it wound up being a staggering 7 disc set, full of Paisley style smoking hot licks and blazing guitar solos.
You may be under the impression, like many players, that Paisley's "technique" simply consists of flipping off to open strings, and there's no real musical "theory" behind what he plays.WRONG!
It's true that he does use that technique a lot in his style, but there are quite a few more trademark techniques that make up his overall style and unmistakable Paisley sound.
As far as the theory behind the open string style licks, it's easy to understand once you know how he thinks and the scales he plays out of the most. And, as I just mentioned, that's only ONE of the many "secret techniques" he has up his sleeve.
"Pickin' Like Paisley"
Without a doubt, this is the ABSOLUTE BEST Brad Paisley Style Instructional Video Set Available On The Planet! And if your familiar with my other videos,you'll know that my teaching methods are straight to the point, solid instruction, that teaches you how to "think" as a guitar player,not just copy someone's licks.
There are more than 170 Lick examples and 18 solo examples spread out over this course! I put 20 jam tracks together for you to practice with,a combination of common progressions, in different keys, and at various tempos to help you master and enjoy playing his style.
Even if you're not a Paisley fan, this video set is a must for every Guitar player that wants to broaden their country guitar chicken pickin skills. You can apply all of these "secret techniques" to your own style and existing licks, and virtually double or even triple your lick vocabulary by using just 2 of the techniques I teach in this course!
Nothing But The Licks! - Once you've watched all the videos a few times and have absorbed the powerful techniques I teach you, it's time to hit the wood shed and practice them. So, to help make things easier for you, Disc 6 contains nothing but all the lick examples, played fast, then slow, with hardly any talking going on.
What This Course Is All About
This is not an instructional video course that will teach you how to play entire Paisley songs note for note. For copyright reasons I couldn't do that if I wanted to.
The purpose of this course is to teach you his style and the many techniques that he uses to make up his over all sound. I chose to teach you the guitar licks, and ideas for coming up with your own Paisley style licks, that you can apply to an unlimited number of songs, and not the ones that don't lend themselves to incorporate into other songs or progressions.
The majority of Brad Paisley's up-tempo songs are "Train Beat" style songs, so that's what I'm going to teach you. These are licks and technique "ideas" that I guarantee will take your guitar playing to a new level.
Now, I didn't want to just do a half-hearted job on this video, so I spent an entire 2 months just studying his style and the techniques he uses to get that unmistakable "Paisley" sound. And let me tell you, it was a long and tedious 2 months! But as I went along, I noticed that some patterns were starting to immerge, and before long I was able to listen to one of his solos and have a very good idea of what he was playing before I even picked up my guitar to play it. These are the same techniques that I'm going to teach you throughout this 7 Disc Instructional Video Series!
I've Done All The Hard Work For You!

"Pickin Like Paisley" - 7 Disc Set
Hi Ken, Regarding your new video, "Pickin Like Paisley" - Good stuff man!!!!
I think this is the best you've done so far. And I think that this is due to the fact that you had to learn some new stuff yourself before making the video.The part about the foundation building is probably the best part. Getting to know how Brad Paisley thinks and trying to incorporate some of his style into mine, like you do.
I wish you knew how much your dvds developed my playing and my ways of thinking over the past 2 years.
And in my 12 years of playing, it usually didn't take long for me to hit the ceiling every now and then, but the past 2 years just went so smoothly. I can't even remember the last time I just sat there with my guitar hour after hour not knowing what to do next. I'm always greatful for your help and suppprt Ken!
I just wanted to say that Ken's "Country Guitar Chops" instructional videos has brought my pickin to a whole new level in a short amount of time!
I spent some time in Nashville and did some pickin around there and when I returned home from my trip I knew I needed to learn a lot!
So I chose Country Guitar Chops (all the DVDS) and within week one of Studying Ken's lessons, people from the crowd (at the gig) were commenting on my playing, thinking I learned a bunch in Nashville, when really it came courtesy of Country Guitar Chops!
I highly recommend this website and all DVDs for any level guitar player. Ken breaks it down and it's easy to learn and understand, unlike some of the other instructional videos on the internet or anywhere else for that matter.

Hi Ken, I just wanted to thank you for sending the DVDs so promptly. They arrived here in Australia a few days ago and I've been looking at them to get an overview of what's in each one. I really think they are fantastic and all the detail that you go into on the "Mastering The Fret Board With Intervals". These DVDs will certainly be a big help with my guitar playing.
The other three DVDs are really great too and the way you explain things is excellent. I'm so pleased you have used some of Pete Andersons playing as examples as he is one of my all-time favorite players from the days he played with Dwight. The other players that have been an influence on your playing are certainly favorites of mine also.
I'm also loving having access to "The Woodshed",and the licks you send out by email. Thanks again and I hope you will do some more DVD lessons in the future. Best regards, Grant. __________________________
Hey Ken! I ordered the Pickin' Like Paisley DVD set yesterday! If it's anything like the rest of your DVDs I know it will be great! I have all of your stuff and it's great, but I could really tell you done some woodsheddin' put this thing together. I pretty much knew I was going to order it when I saw the title, as Paisley's licks and runs always leave me baffled, lol. But, when I watched the demo video I could hear a difference in your playing immediately! Congrats on getting this DVD together, I can tell put a lot of hard work in it and I can't wait to start on it! Thanks, - Jess

I Downloaded mine today and
started right away. Truly amazing!
It does worth the price for what it
has to offer. Adding to that, Ken
gave me an incredible support
and answered all my questions!
Its Ken from Australia here. I just
wanted to let you know that the Pickiní
like Paisley DVDs arrived a few days ago
and I have spent every spare moment
looking through them to get an
overview of what is in them. I wanted
to tell you what a fantastic job you have
done. It,s easy to see how much work
you have put into these and as with all
your DVDs they are so well done and
very professionally presented. I can,t
wait to get stuck in and learn as much as
I can from them. Thanks so much for
doing such a great job on Brads style.
Just ordered it, I play in a busy
modern country band and would love
to expand my vocabulary. Perfect
product at the perfect time!
As soon as the preview started to
play, I knew this was gonna be
something good. Anyone that is into
this style will have to get this. Your
playing on this is "Amazing" to
say the least. As much work that
went into this, plus what someone
could potentially learn from this
course makes the price small in
comparison. There's a ton of material
here. My wife will be mad at you
when I lock myself in my studio for
the next 3 months. Vinnie
Since there is only one Paisley, playing all his solos is not what I want, but starting to play that combo scale and the other techniques gives me some great new ideas to add to my arsenal. You've made a good job explaining his technique without copying his licks. This video is a natural step from the others you've done. But a student can use this video without having the other ones.
The combination of scales and the way you explain it is the key to the whole video. For that you should have a golden star in your book of life. Keep up the fantasic work! - Michael
