This is a great “hybrid” picking technique that uses a real split-string effect to achieve its most effective end. You can use it as a blues-oriented style, as well as country, and it is extremely effective at all tempos. It’s also a great “snarly” effect when you really want to add a twangy and powerful sound to your soloing and fills.

This little guitar part packs a big punch when it comes to being able to use it in many other applications and keys. But the main reason for showing it here in A is to illustrate its versatility in that key, which allows us the open A to alternate with.

Today I’m going to talk about combining harmonics with certain chord positions. Harmonics can be found all over the guitar, and it’s something u should experiment with when you have time.

I call it the “Jingle Bell Rock” chord and I can’t be sure but it sounds like it could have originally been played by Hank Garland- but I don’t know for sure. You have your root on top, a Major 3rd, your 2nd, which gives it that great ‘50s voicing, and then a natural 7th. And it sounds great. And it makes it a great chord to slide up an down so you have to get used to the position because as you slide up and down you have to adjust that spread of your fingers as the freeboard gets narrow and wider.

Here’s a great application of the “hybrid” style of picking, added to Chuck Berry-style licks. This is a great lick that I first picked up in this manner from the great Danny Gatton. It involves a wonderful kind of syncopation that is strictly established by the “hybrid” picking style. As you’ll see, it creates a kind of “circular” motion to the lick, with a nicely “pedaled” root note.
