Red Haired Boy

red-haired-boy-guitar-lesson-with-tablature
Lesson ID: A0220

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a nice bluegrass flatpicking arrangement for “Red Haired Boy”. This song is one of the most common fiddle tunes played at bluegrass jams. NOTE: We’re going to play “Red Haired Boy” using key of G chords and scales, but we’ll capo the 2nd fret so technically this is in the key of A.

After you learn the flatpicking break, practice along with the “Red Haired Boy” backing track that comes with this guitar lesson. “Red Haired Boy” guitar tablature is available for download below the lesson video.

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.
