  • Hi GMC!

    The "Easy Country Solo" lesson is a fairly straight ahead country solo that keeps it simple. A few of the compositional elements that make this solo pretty easy are its slower tempo, simple rhythms, use of standard alternate picking (no hybrid here), basic bends, slides, hammer-ons, and pull-offs, and most bars start on the note name of the chord (root) being played by the rhythm section and utilizes only major pentatonic scales.
