Chicken Pickin’ Lick 3 in A

Lesson ID: A0218

Here is Chicken Pickin’ Guitar Lick 3 in the key of A. This is a fun country guitar lick that travels up the neck in a really creative way. We’re going to combine Lick 3 with Chicken Pickin’ Licks 1 and 2 to create a complete guitar solo that’s 12 measures long in total. After you learn all of the licks, practice them over the full-length backing track that’s available with this lesson post.

I prefer using Woodtone Triangle Picks (black) in .71mm for chicken pickin’ because shape, size, and flex of these picks feels perfect.

Chicken Pickin’ Lick 2 in A

Lesson ID: A0216

Here is Chicken Pickin’ Guitar Lick 2 in the key of A. This electric guitar riff is extremely useful because it sounds amazing over just about every country chord progression in the key of A. Many country guitar licks are designed to be played over specific chords, but this chicken pickin’ electric guitar lick works well over most chords in A (especially the I, IV, and V chords). After you learn this country guitar lick, practice playing it over the full-length backing track that comes with this lesson.

I prefer using Woodtone Triangle Picks (black) in .71mm for chicken pickin’ because shape, size, and flex of these picks feels perfect.
