This is a guitar lick from Mr. guitar himself, Chet Atkins. This comes from Chet’s first hit, called "Galloping on the Guitar" that was cut with Jethro Burns on mandolin in 1947 for RCA. It is one of the first chicken pickin' licks recorded. You can hear a lot of the slapping strings against the frets and utilizing open strings to help spell out a chord’s arpeggio. It has us outlining the arppegios of I and IV chord.
