Hybrid Picking is an essential tool in the country guitarist's tool box. It is the sound that most modern country lead guitar is built on and is the Chet Atkins and Brent Mason style.

Hybrid Picking is simply playing with your pick and fingers at the same time. This can be done with a flatpick or with a thumbpick and the result is a whole lot of snap in your playing.

Here is a look at what hybrid picking looks like and how it sounds. In this lesson series we'll simplify this technique and progress in the basic steps to mastering the technique.
