Paisley Pickin' - Lick 48 is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 50 Country Masters Licks You MUST Know.


Now we are getting into the more modern country guitar players. Brad Paisley is an influential modern day chicken picker. He has his own way of chicken pickin that is pretty unique to him, rather than just regurgitating other people's licks. One of his approaches is use pull-offs to open strings in a really unorthodox way. His pull-offs to open strings are usually pretty wide intervals and he uses a lot of doubling fretted notes with open strings, which creates a great chorusing effect. We're going to take a look a look at one of his guitar licks from his instrumental record Cluster Pluck, which features a bunch of great guitar legends. This is one of his licks over A and it's going to show off some of his pull-offs to open strings.
