This week I came up with a rock/country/blues sort of thing inspired by some of the Nashville session guitarists I've been checking out, like Brent Mason. Some players will find it more comfortable to hybrid pick (or chickin' pick in this case), using your middle finger to play some of the notes. I do that when I play it really fast, but I usually default to just using my pick when I'm able. Note the slurs marked in the notation, it'll make it easier to build up the speed.
