Chickin Pickin gets its name from the sound of a chicken's " buck buck
buck-eee " banter. Muted staccato notes followed by a slightly longer one.
It ain't bluegrass leads or shredding. Try playing a meaningful melodic
solo in your favorite country song, and bring in some buck buck buckee
notes that inspire some humor! Listen to Chet Atkins.

this aint chicken picking.

Автор starscream ( назад)
That is not chicken picken. Everyone seems to think chicken Pickens means
to just play fast. That has nothing to do with it.
Chicken picken is a technique where you mute and play the string almost
instantaneous and it produces a clucking sound.
Just search for JAMES Burton chicken picken.
He invinted the technique and is I'm all honesty probably the most
difficult technique to master on all of guitar.

The first bending example, how do you bend the string so well when it's so
close to the nut?

Автор gbpillsbury ( назад)
This is exactly the style of playing I want to lean and develop! I
recently went to Nashville and saw a young guitarist named Daniel Donato
play this style. It was awesome! I will be moving on with your lesson.

Wasn't much of a country fan... til I heard this guy jamming. I'm hooked

I have a question but first, I've been "borrowing" some of the style, just
to enhance my mostly rock guitar.
I always try and change my tones to keep fresh.
Now the question.
Do country guitar players, always play their tones with that
delay/verb/twang effect?
I get into "ruts" some years which, makes me go onto other guitar player
repertoires and voila' a new tone arrives.
Thank you.

Finger picks, like the one on his thumb, work just as well. Also I keep my
nails constantly cut and I chickin' pick fine, you just need to form
calluses on your picking fingers.

Yes, it's an unauthorized Bill Lawrence Swampkaster (yes, it's spelled that
way). Bill Lawrence has NOTHING to do with these cheap guitars. The rights
to his name were simply taken and he can't get them back. How much does
that suck? lol So, Bill DOES NOT MAKE THESE. These cheapo axes sell for
around $500.00 new. So, about the same as a Mexican Tele and half the
quality of one. So, it's a real pile. I've played a few and they are just

It's a Nashville Tele. Modeled after Brent Mason's custom guitar he uses. A
staple in country music as far as getting a good tone, especially for a
little extra pluck.

I love the fact that you explained that alot of country players play around
the chord. I'm a rythm player that rarely solos and then only pentatonic so
it was good to learn this essential lesson in order to get the "sound".

@rodbuoy True, only I used to think that then I checked out a Haar T Style
and it played better than any Tele I ever played, (and I have played a
ton). Those Crook T's that Paisley plays must be pretty special too. These
small builders seem to be building guitars the way Fender would have built
them back in the 50's. Even the Custom Shop guitars by Fender today are
still mass produced compared to some of the smaller builders.

Telecaster is a registered trademark of Fender.Any other copy is just a
copy. Stop trying to capitalize on the fender name! 

Автор rodboy rodder ( назад)
if it ain,t a fender it,s not a telecaster

Автор joeblowunlimited ( назад)
@jeremiahjbarnes06 Well, tell it to this here Peter Vogel: He's playing on
one of the many custom shop Telecasters that are far superior to Fenders,
and yet he still calls it a Telecaster. Hmmm, he must not know anything
about guitars--you'd better tell him he's an idiot and maybe educate him a
little. Dipshit.

Автор jeremiah barnes ( назад)
@joeblowunlimited Telecaster is the name of the guitar you idiot. Just like
the Gibson Les Paul, or Fender Strat, or Gibson Sg or Melody Maker, or
Danelectro 59 DC or any guitar. It is the name of the guitar and not a type
of guitar. If you were to say Telecaster is a thinline, semi-hollowbody, I
might agree with you. Or Gretsch makes hollowbodies or the Les Paul is a
solid body. Then yes, you would be talking about a type of guitar. As for
pickup config, teles have like 4 or 5.

Автор psychofunksoldier02 ( назад)
Thanks for this basics.

Автор tony9L9L ( назад)
Yeah but I still don't know how to pick a chicken....

Автор wvgitpicker ( назад)
@joeblowunlimited Joe, while respecting your comment Tele doesn't just mean
Fenders guitars, I've playing for over 32 years and there is no other
guitar on Gods green earth that sounds like a Telecaster. When other
companies certainly can copy the look of a Telecaster, no way do they ever
get that Telecaster sound. If I was totally blind, I can still tell the
difference between a FenderTelecaster or a copy. I wouldn't trade my $600
Tele for any other brand Tele, even if it sold for ten grand.

@kristinparkermusic Listen to Brad Paisleys song "Pre-Cluster Pluck
Prequel" from the CD play they give you some names and examples of how that
specific player sounds, Brad himself is also a good chicken picker, and his
CD play displays his chicken picking the most.

why do country players use compression? is it cause the pick is louder than
using your fingers an it evens out the sound or somethin??

@Megadethmegadethfan1 That basically names me, too. I started with metal
and eventually developed an interest in country/bluegrass type of guitar
playing. Have you ever seen John 5's work? I think that you will really
like his playing style.

@BluesJazzClassical i would have to agree to some degree

Yes, yes, I know who Jeff Loomis is, he is very talented. The sad part is
you are cant appreciate the talent offered by people who play this style.
Check out Brad Paisley's album called "Play: The Guitar Album" and I'll bet
you will have to admit that he brings as much talent to the world of guitar
as Jeff Loomis does to his genre. They are all amazing!

As with all things - guitar necks are a matter of personal taste and-
remarkably - some good players can make one sound pretty much loike the
other. Out of scores of guitars over the years I've only had 2 maple necks
- one on an early Burns and the other on my current Tele which looks right,
feels right and sounds right and is very definitely a keeper!

rosewood = warmer maple = bright and springy

Автор Will Smyser ( назад)
@waitaminute991 I would also like to point out that ebony (which looks like
rosewood but darker) is a bright and snappy sounding fretboard wood so that
may be what he has here.

Автор Will Smyser ( назад)
@waitaminute991 rosewood gives a warmer/darker tone. So maple is better for
"twang" usually. But the rosewood would smooth out some of the overly
piercing tones if your amp is a little too bright.

Автор Parker Atwood ( назад)
maple is a bright tone, rosewood is kind of a deep acoustic/blues tone. you
gotta figure it out your self.
