In this lesson I go through my way of playing, and how I approach "Country Picking".
The lesson is aimed at a more intermediate / advanced crowd but still has a lot to offer for someone who is just starting out with this style of playing. The lesson comes with a full TAB/music sheet in GP/PDF and it contains all the examples shown inside and the breakdown of the intro "Twang Thang" which I play at the beginning of lesson. You can find the TAB/Music sheet here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/depqoqn5ca...
You will also find diverse sounds & "colors" such as major and minor pentatonics, blue notes, mixolydian scale, dorian scale, chromatic scale, triads to name a few, when you learn & play the licks and phrases inside!
Techniques found inside are Hybrid picking, Chicken Picking, Hammer Ons & Pull Offs, Slides, Double stop, Bends etc. I start with the basics of Hybrid Picking and subdivision and then move on to break down everything I played in the Intro.
In the lesson I focus on time, feel & general musicality before anything else, it is crucial that you try to work and practice the way I show here in order to be successful with the content. This style of playing if very demanding in terms of Control & Technique, so take your time with it, play everything slow, don't worry about speed, make sure everything is clear-sounding and flowing, always listen to how you sound.
Once you feel comfortable with the basics, move on to the 4 big phrases/licks.
they each represent the best things I like about this style, and I composed them
in the spirit of the greats.
1st phrase, "The Tommy", which brings to table some Tommy Emmanuel style at the start of the lick.
2nd phrase, "The Stopper", using double stops with chicken picking in the spirit of Lee & Gatton.
3rd phrase, "The Ace" is probably the most difficult one to execute, in the spirit of the great Danny Gatton and Albert Lee.
4th phrase, "The Mason" is in the spirit of the amazing Brent Mason.
I hope you will find this helpful and insightful!
Practice smart, play hard & "Get to work!"
