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.

Hi Devin: Thanks for this good solo. Like you, I play a Telecaster. I play through a Fender Blues Junior amp and was wondering what effects pedals you were using to get that nice twang? It’s the signature country sound, but tough (for me) to pull off.
