  • Hello GMC'ers! In this lesson you will learn some simple country-based rhythmic figures, using standard blues progression.

    If you want to play country, it's important to tighten up those rhythmic skills. In terms of technical skills, you need to make your strums precise, and your muting exact(primarily with your fretting hand).

    In terms of theory, if you want to play rhythm of any kind, you simply have to know the chords. We will use simple A, D and E chords in this lesson, but watch closely for embellishments. You will use your pinky often to add certain notes to our basic major chord shapes, this is how we will create discrete mini melodies while comping the rhythm. Try to make these as tight as possible. By adding these notes, we will create some voicing's that are often used in country music: A6, A7, sus4 etc.
