Watch the Chickin Pickin in A online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Principles

Chickin Pickin in A - Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by Johnny Hiland and is sourced from Ten Gallon Guitar: Rhythm.

This track is very similar to our first one, but now in half-time which means you have to play a little differently. Instead of starting out in the "Working Man" groove, I'm starting out in a straight A with a 60's country lick. I used a roll going into the D, which brings us back into our A section. Here we'll bring a little bit of "Working Man" back in, and then went into the E using a steel guitar drone alongside some fingerpicking.

For the second half, I started with the "Working Man" feel again with some new licks added in and rolled into the D chord. I used an open string scale part to get into the A, also using the bend down we went over in Section 1, and then walking up back into the E.
