In this video, I teach another hybrid picking pattern that you can use to add a little extra style to your playing. This particular pattern calls for a combination of strumming and plucking the strings. It'll really make your rhythm guitar sound a little more country.
Just A Kiss is originally played on piano. In this lesson, I'll show you an easy and accurate way to play it on guitar. This version captures the chords and the melody line.
In this lesson, I'll go over an easy way to play Good Directions by Billy Currington. This song has been one of my favorite songs since it came out. It's really catchy and always fun to sing.
In this lesson, I'll show you how to play the intro to Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band. This is a difficult piece to play. I recommend this lesson to the more experienced pickers.
In this lesson I'll show you how to play Somebody's Heartbreak by Hunter Hayes. This song is a little more challenging because of the rhythm and hybrid picking. It's a tough song to figure out but it's definitely worth learning.
In part II of this lesson series, we'll go over how to play the verse, chorus, and bridge of this song. The verses are very similar to the intro that was taught in part I, but there are a few differences that are worth learning. This is one of my favorite country songs on the charts today!

Storm Warning is a more intermediate to advanced song. In this lesson, I'll show you how to play the intro. The same intro riff is played throughout each verse also, so once you get the intro down, you've learned the majority of the song.

This lesson goes over how to play a challenging bluegrass riff in the key of G. The riff is tough to play up to speed, but it also sounds great when you play it a lot slower. To build up your speed and picking efficiency, try to replicate the up and down pick strokes I use in the video.

This lesson explains what hybrid picking is and shows you how to do it. If you're getting bored with strumming and you would like to change things up a bit, hybrid picking is a great technique to learn. The ability to hybrid pick will make you stand out as a guitar player because there aren't too many pickers out there that know how.
