So What Makes Me A Chicken Pickin Expert?

Well, I wouldn’t call myself an expert, but I have been playing this stuff for about 40 years now and have developed a technique, or “system” that I use to navigate the neck while playing those fast solo’s.

I grew up playing the guitar to country music. I certainly can play other styles, but I really enjoy playing the “Chicken Pickin” style. It’s pretty challenging. I was fortunate to be able to play with a fellow named Don Kelley for a while when I lived in Nashville. He’s the one who helped inspire me to be a better guitar player.

Private lessons from a “qualified” instructor is a great resource to have, if you can afford it. I couldn’t, and there wasn’t any “country” guitar instructors where I come from, not anyone that knows this hot modern country chicken pickin style anyway, so purchasing videos was the most affordable and best way for me to learn.

What I don’t like about most instructional videos is that they don’t show you how to use the licks in context with a song. I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, so it helps me to hear licks played along to a rhythm track. Some videos don’t break down and explain the licks either, as well as provide good close up shots of each hand so you can easily see what’s going on in close detail.
