EXAMPLE5 cHicken pickin’ lick

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY | PICKING -

This ar­che­typal coun­try style lick could be played with reg­u­lar al­ter­nate pick­ing but it just wouldn’t sound right; hy­brid pick­ing re­ally en­hances generic au2thexnxxtix­cx­itxyx­inxxtx­his style. Use the pick­ing in­di­cated through­out – (‘m’ in­di­cates sec­ond fin­ger as used in tra­di­tional fin­ger­style no­ta­tion). Pay par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion when play­ing the ham­mer-ons and pull offs: th­ese need to be per­formed rhyth­mi­cally ac­cu­rate through­out (ie not as grace notes).
