Here’s my definition of chicken picking:
I know. So good it could be in Webster’s Dictionary 🙂
Everyone from Billy Gibbons to Chet Atkins has used this and today I want to show you that you can do it too.
Want to learn how to fingerpick before chicken picking? Then check out this article on how to fingerpick.
P.S. Let me know in the comments if you enjoyed trying this out.
Super cool. Thanks.
That is a cool lick on the guitar, what is coming next????? Butch
I really like your show and your e-mail. I am learning a lot from you.
Good one Tony, Cant wait to joint T.A.C. soon. Guy [poor mans guitarsenal].
what do you do if you lost the last one inch of my 4th digit picking hand? Gary
I have lost the last inch on my ring finger of my picking hand. A piece of steel I was carrying fell on my hand when I slipped on ice. I’ve moved to Florida to prevent further problems. I’ve found that you just have to substitute another finger. You may have to have one finger do double duty. Remember, there is no one “correct” way to play a guitar. It is the sound that counts, not the technique. It may take you extra time to perfect the sound but it is the sound that counts. You will find a way if you try.
Looks GREAT, I’m overloaded right now though. please sign me up to get more of your stuff later… say a month or there bouts. And I’ll get right with you on it!
Excellent Tony..great exercises!
Thanks for the hybrid picking lesson. I look forward to the blues lick and other lessons.
Thank you Mr. Tony for the chicken pick technique.
In my book, that’s more of a banjo roll, like Travis picking but with a flatpick instead of the thumb. Chicken picking is a more percussive and staccato variant of this, effected by picking with a slight upstroke.
Cool I will try it. Thank you
