Watch the Chicken in the Rain online guitar lesson by John Knowles, C.G.P. from Fingerstyle Journals
I was inspired to write "Chicken in the Rain" when I saw a stuffed animal in a gift shop window. It was a chicken in a raincoat and hat...like a lobster fisherman's outfit. The idea of wet chickens just seemed funny to me. It suggested some quirky rhythms and unexpected harmonies. So, I went to the key of C for a Merle Travis, "Saturday Night Shuffle" feel and I got to work.
