Watch the Chicken Picking 2 online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from 100 Twang Thangs

This example features repetition of notes. Listen to some Alan Jackson songs. Brent Mason plays some great stuff on these cuts. I use the sixth string fifth fret A and the fifth string open A. The matching pitches on different strings produces the sound you hear. I’m sure you recognize the cliché bluegrass lick that follows. I use the matching pitch idea again over the D chord. This time I use the C natural which is the flatted seventh from the blues scale. Over the E chord, I used some James Burton type licks.
