Let's do a little chicken pickin' today with my favorite hoedown licks. In this lesson series, I break it down into an exercise that will build up your picking and Stubby Slide chops. As we go on in the next videos, I show how that simple riff can be morphed into blues and even Appalachian murder ballad styles. Start slow and build up speed over time.
