Chicken Pickin' Licks on Guitar


David Shorr

Today I'm going to show you 3 different chickin pickin licks you absolutely should know. These licks are all going to use the pentatonic and blues scales in a few super common country keys like A, D, and G. This is a great opportunity to practice your hybrid picking and to learn how to make a solo fit the chord changes you're playing over.

The best thing to do with these would be to memorize them and try and plug them into your solos when you have chord changes that transition in the same way. You could also try taking them and transposing them into a few other keys. Maybe even take some of the ideas I showed you here to come up with your own licks! There's a lot of great little nuggets in here and the best way to improve your musical vocabulary is by taking things that you hear and getting under the hood to see what makes 'em tick!
