Watch the Chickin' Pickin' Tonic online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 30 Modern Country Guitar Licks You MUST Know
Here's a short chickin pickin' lick for those that might be new to the style. It's in the key of C and very pentatonic. The important parts are the notes you don't play.
I'll briefly talk about my use of a compressor pedal when getting this sound. Compressors are key when it comes to playing clean riffs of this type. Plug into one first and then go to the amp. Voila! You'll now have some spanky clean chickin pickin tone!
