Lesson ID: FL0002

In this country guitar lesson, I’ll teach you how to play three bluesy country licks on acoustic guitar in the key of D. The first two guitar licks are great to play as fill riffs when you switch between chords. The third lick is a little longer and it sounds nice as a fill riff or as part of a full-length country guitar solo. Later in the lesson, you’ll also learn a more advanced country strumming pattern that works really well for playing country rhythm guitar in the key of D.
