I have to admit… chicken pickin’ is something I’m sorta fascinated with. It’s so not the style of music I play, but man, I definitely respect it. I bet it’s super fun to play when you get it. I’m no where near to getting it, but I like checking out videos / demos of guys that can play that style.
Here is a quick video of Keith Sewell who has played with some great musicians (Lyle Lovett, Dixie Chicks, etc). In the video he demonstrates how the MXR Custom Comp does it’s thing ‘without being heard’ and just tightens the sound. Then he polishes it off with some quick delay using the MXR Carbon Copy. Check it out! Oh.. the video is by fpe.
