The Chicken Reel has a melody that sounds almost comical. The way it hangs on the minor third note and goes into the major third note, makes it sound like it's unsure of what it wants to do! That's part of the charm. This is a beginner melody that's nice and easy to play. The only challenge is a pinky stretch to the fourth fret of the B string. Don't feel like you have to hold the C chord down while you play this. A little position shifting it ok.
