John 5 Banjo Lick
Great, fast banjo style lick from an unlikely soure.
Aledort may be uh…tired, but he’s a great player and gives a great overview of the style in this video.
Shredder Morse gives a demo and lesson from one of his 80s videos.
From TrueFireTV (a great website by the way), Joe Dalton shows off some great licks and explains them.
Ken is from Country Guitar Chops and demos a great lick here inspired by the steel guitar.
Redd is one of my favorite country guitarists. Here he talks about hybrid picking.
Doug is a great chicken pickin’ teacher. Check out his ‘trick’ here.
Albert Lee has never been afraid to show his tricks-and really there should be a post of just his videos. Here are a bunch to get you going.
Quite possibly the father of chicken pickin’ himself, check out James in his DVD.
Dario is another great chicken pickin’ teacher and player. He tackles one of Brent Mason’s great solos here. He’s got a ton of other shorter videos on YouTube, so check him out!

I was amazed when I heard the beginning of this one. Totally believable steel on guitar licks!
This guy is criminally overlooked, worth watching.
Not a lesson, but a great close up view of some amazing chicken pickin’ on his version of “The Claw.”
He may be pompus, but he’s an absolute chicken pickin’ master.
