longtime fan of the chicken pickin' style and think it's 'bout time i venture into it myself. i can't read music, but would love it if you guys could recommend me some tabs, lessons, videos, etc. would be greatly appreciated!
Here's a Brad Paisley video, a JT Corenflos video (you don't know who he is now but after the video you'll love his playing), and a Chicken Pickin video teaching 2 licks from Josh Thompson songs.
And this String Bending video is pretty country-related, as well as this Country Solo Improvisation video.
On Monday I have another video coming out that teaches some country stuff that I'm really excited about.
My first foray into chicken pickin was learning the intro to Mr. Policeman by Brad Paisley. I remember when that clicked and I never looked back.
