The Chicken Reel - Simple

  • Simple
  • Key   D
  • Tempo   80 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE
The Chicken Reel is a fun little tune that plays with major/minor tonality, a trait common to blues music, but in this case a fiddle tune. The melody here is paraphrased to simplicity, but still maintains the key notes that make this tune instantly identifiable. The substitution licks will challenge you and provide a lot of interesting variations!
