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.
