Lesson ID: A0205
In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn two 12-bar bluegrass flatpicking guitar solos in the key of C. These two solos are loaded with stock bluegrass licks that you can use to improvise solo breaks over the majority of bluegrass songs that are in the key of C.
As you’re learning the guitar solos, study how each lick fits over the chords of the rhythm part — the licks fit very nicely over each guitar chord. Learning how to solo with licks that follow the chord progression will really help you break out of the “pentatonic scale box” and your solos will sound much more interesting.
After you learn the guitar solos, practice them with the rhythm track at the end of each video.

Here’s another back porch lesson for y’all! Does this lesson format work for learning an entire guitar solo? Seems like everyone liked this format for learning the guitar lick in Back Porch Lesson 1.
It looks like a great guitar lesson. You have better weather than we have right now in Canada too
Thanks for your Back Porch series Devin. Very applicable licks.
Wow! 3rd to 10th fret slide! That’s a first for me. Looking forwards to this one!
