  • The "Boogie Woogie Country" lesson explores a fundamental rhythm style of country music. It compliments the more traditional alternating bass, "boom-chick" style. The roots of this style lie in blues and rock. It centers around a chunky power chord with limited moving notes. In this lesson we will play three different variations on the theme. The first time through the progression (12 bars) we use a standard down stroke pattern. The second time through we use a chicken picking' style hybrid picking. The third time through we play a melodic pentatonic pattern.
