Chet Atkins Hybrid Picking Progression

Lesson ID: A0086

In this intermediate guitar lesson video, I’ll teach you one of my favorite hybrid picking progressions in the style of Chet Atkins. Instead of using a thumb pick like Chet Atkins did, we’ll use a standard guitar pick in a hybrid picking style (pick in combo with the other fingers of your right hand). The pick will play an alternating bass line while the ring and middle fingers will pick up the melody notes. This picking pattern can be used with any chord progression.

Thanks I have tried to unlock this concept by slowing the video down. It helps quite a bit

Love this. Shades of Scotty Moore & Creedence. Tabs would indeed be helpful.

I find that I can hybrid pick more now and I do get a more consistent volume now. Excellent lesson set, Devin. Please do more if you can. We love. I might even get my wife into this stuff. She had tried guitar lessons in the past but gave up way too soon
