  • Hello GMC and welcome to my Country Lesson! In this lesson I'll try to introduce you to some major techniques and phrasing needed for cool country playing nowdays:).

    First of all, this AIN'T easy one and there's only one reason for that. Playing these licks on slow speed just doesn't give the right results, it needs to be sort of "on fire". But no need to avoid it either, slow backings are here as always. :)

    Simple chord progression in key of G, G major, C major and D major chords. Scale wise I basicly used 2 scales, G major and G minor pentatonic scales, combining these two I got all I needed. For example, to get C7 chord in lead I simply borough 3rd from Gm pentatonic etc.

    Lots of different techniques tho:
    alternate picking, pull-offs and hammer-ons, hybrid picking, "chicken" picking, bends and double bends, use of open strings, even "fake" steel guitar technique! :)

    Tempo is 140bpm, key of G.

    Enjoy and let me know if you need any help!
