Snappin’ Country Lick!

This style is fun to play, with the snappin’ and poppin’ sounds you get when you pluck the strings with the picking hand. This style is called “hybrid picking”. Chicken picking is a general term for making the notes short and snappy sounding, by pulling on the string.

I got the idea for this from listening to Brent Mason. He’s a master at this technique.

Check out this album of his: – it’s really cool and full of amazing licks!
