Workin Man Blues Solo Ideas - Instructional DVD
Like the previous chicken pickin video lesson "Folsom Blues Solo Ideas", this lead guitar instructional video after many requests from evn more guitarists wanting to learn some hot chickin pickin style licks that they could incorporate over the infamous "Working Man Blues" song progression. So finally, here it is!
These licks and ideas will work over any progression and chicken pickin style song. If you have any of my other instructional videos,Modern Chickin Pickin and Folsom Blues Solo Ideas, then you know that I not only show you how to play all the licks, but I go into great detail to explain everything about it, including the chord shapes I'm "thinking" around while playing a lick, and how the notes of a lick fit into and around a particular chord or type of scale pattern.
I also explain why I might choose a specific lick to play here and there and variations of many licks so you can choose how you might want to play it yourself over various songs. As in all my videos, I try to teach you how to be a guitar "thinker" rather than a guitar "player" just copying licks.
More cool lick Ideas from guys like Brent Mason, Brad Paisley,
You get over an hour and a half of hard core country guitar licks played over the Workin Man Blues progression. I put together 4 great solos with more of my favorite licks. Combine them and mix them up for an endless array mind blowing chicken pickin madness!

Still working on Folsom, but yesterday I played the rock (jam track) tune and started improvising. I like the way you force me into thinking and playing. These videos will last a long time!!!
Hi Ken, Just got back from a Holiday trip. DVD arrived, if it's like the first one, I'm sure I'll enjoy it. Thanks for the personal follow-up. Best regards,
The videos look brilliant and are at your usual very high standard. I got some work to do! Again, many thanks,
Hey Ken, love the new working man solo ideas. Kevin Shiflett
Hi Ken, I started guitar late in life (60) and have gone from blues to classic rock to country. I have enjoyed your dvd's and am looking forward to this one. I like the whole working man blues song. from the rhythm part to the licks. Thanks for this, David
Hi Ken! I've just started the download for working man blues, I can't wait! You're really making a huge contribution to my playing and I think to other guitarists all over the world! You really know how to make something stick, in your playingand your teaching and I think I am privaliged to have someone with such great knowlage to learn from. I'll let you know what I think of the DVD, but I bet it will be as good as your previous ones! Thanks again. Peet - South Africa
Ken, thanks for a great product. I've purchased many "how to " books on the subject of chicken picking, and yours gets my highest rating for overall quality. I'm not computer savvy, but your DVD s were easy to use and the format allowed me to learn the material quickly. That matters when you work full-time and have a wife and kids! I was also surprised at how quickly you respond to questions that may arise. My band has been on hiatus and I'm looking forward to showing off my new chops when we practice next. Thanks again. Tim
Hi Ken. I spent about 4 hours practicing from the folsom prison tape this morning and will probably get back to it later.I've been over and over the workingt man tape and I really feel good about the great new licks I've added the old arsenal. I've incorporated many of them into the old songs I've played for years and I'll probably order the chicken picking one next week. Larry
The difference for me, and why I ordered (I thread youtube heavily and have seen the gamut of approaches), is that you provide a nice background and logic about what you do and how you approach what you teach. I think most players who want to further skills are curious about where their teacher came from and how he acquired his skill set. You have turned me on to some easy ways to ID what happens from position to position. The licks and discipline I am learning are so much fun.
