    I think you have all those awesome licks! Where are you learning from? I want some

    Now you know the right notes. I would break them down, practice slow, clean, with good timing, fully articulate each note. That guitar was born to play those hot licks, make it sing. If you can get it down slow, going faster is easy.

    Thanks man! I'm just trying to chicken pick over blues scales and licks that I know. You don't think I'm hybrid picking to much do you? I was wondering.

    how long have you been at it for? it sounds like you're having fun and working hard. I wouldn't worry about how much you are hybrid picking or anything like that. I would just keep playing and your touch and tone will keep improving.

    I wouldn't worry too much about chickin' pickin' either, I would concentrate on tempo, tone, phrasing and bending in tune, dynamics and playing even lines. It sounds like you are finding the right notes on the neck!! I wouldn't allow myself the luxury of a compressor either. play straight up clean through an amp w/o any effects for a while yet. (I couldn't really tell what you were playing through, but it sounded kind of processed to me).


    Good job and thanks for sharing!!

    Thanks man! I love that ol' country stuff. I was playing through a Fender Champion 100. I've since traded it and the guitar off. Got a Peavey Bandit 65 and a Butterscotch Player Series Tele.
