I have fun making country music.

I've had this idea rolling around for a while. I wanted to make the best possible primer for anyone interested in country guitar, whether it's a passing interest or undying obsession.

This video has the first 10 licks you need to know as a country player. It exposes you to some great songs, legendary artists, and need-to-know guitarists in the genre.

And it's only 8 and a half minutes long.

Plus, watch to the end and you might get sent a new guitar...

Thanks, let me know what you think!

Cool primer.

None of the licks are particularly difficult, but inventing them sure is. Playing with taste and restraint is what makes a guitarist truly great because they're supporting the song.

Getting these into your bag will help program your fingers to start 'thinking' like the pros do.

Fixed your

Fun presentation, very creative.

And here after all these years I thought tone was in the fingers, but this reveals tone is in the eyebrows.

Or if you're running a mono mix instead of stereo...

Guy seems to really know what he's talking about. I'm not a big country fan, but heard all those songs and his video was great.

I'm more interested in adding licks to what I know for improvising country stuff in general, not learning exact parts to be in a country cover band.

But that's just me, I just play country "some" of the time.

I love all styles of guitar and want to keep learning so this isn't really helpful. (:oD

I think it's intended for players who are unfamiliar with the archetypal techniques and tones of both kinds of music: country AND western.

For players like you that have lots of gig and recording experience in your bag, that vid is walkin' ya backerds.

That makes sense. (:oD

I'm the goofball who likes to play hard rock, shred, country, blues, rockabilly, jazz, classical, folk, bluegrass, shoegaze . . . .

I've not mastered any of these yet and know it's impossible because there's always something to learn, thankfully.

I never pegged you as a shoegazer type. But hey--it's all rock and roll, and like you say, there is so much to learn. If I hear a cool riff done by an opera singer, it's a safe bet I'm stealing it!

Peegoo - I goof around with shoegaze stuff occasionally, but not often. I love some of the sounds.

The French band Alcest are the best modern shoegaze band. They sing in French which seems to add to the gaze/haze.

I'm no familiar with Hammock but they do the shoegaze thing well.

Countrygaze? Come on, somebody through loads of echo and pitch shifted reverb on steel guitar, banjo, mandolin, etc.! (;oD

I would say My Morning Jacket and Fleet Foxes could qualify as Countrygaze ;-)
