Why not visit that in-between pitch once in a while? In fact, for a warped bent-string riff that stops on the ’tweener pitch, try the greasy chicken pickin’ maneuver notated above. Pluck the second string at the 10th fret, bend it up a whole-step from A to B, and hold it (end of pickup measure); leave it ringing while sounding the D at the 10th fret of the first string (downbeat of the complete bar); pluck the bent second string again (second sixteenth of complete bar); pluck the 9th-fret C# on the first string (third sixteenth); release the second string only a half-step to Bb and pluck it (last sixteenth of beat one); and then play the final five notes as written. You’ll hear two descending lines a third apart. The limp, lazy sound of the bent notes releasing is what makes this savory “poultry pickin’” lick recipe sound like the primary ingredient is boneless chicken.
