In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn three easy fill riffs that you can use to spice up your country & bluegrass rhythm guitar. Each fill riff is one measure long and you can use them in almost any chord progression in the key of G to replace one measure of strumming. These riffs sound especially great over slower country & bluegrass songs.
We just wanted to post a quick video to show you the new Woodtone Picks that I helped design. Long story short, I prototyped and sampled a ton of different pick shapes, and finally settled on three triangle shapes that felt very comfortable to grip. These new Woodtone Picks are made of an upgraded celluloid plastic and we put a ton of effort into making sure the edges of the picks are super smooth for better tone and less pick scraping noise.
We’re extremely happy with how the picks turned out! I use them as my go-to guitar pick and I’d put them up against any of the other high-dollar picks on the market. I like all of the sizes, but my personal favorites are the .96mm Small Triangle and .96mm Medium Triangle picks. If y’all have any questions about them, just let me know!Here’s a link to the new picks if you want to check them out:
In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a few country guitar riffs in the style of Charlie Daniels. We’ll also use the chord progressions from “Long Haired Country Boy” by Charlie Daniels to practice some country strumming patterns and chord embellishments. Overall, this is a great lesson for developing that outlaw country sound on acoustic guitar.
Important Note: Everything that we cover in this lesson will be in Drop D Tuning D-A-D-G-B-E.

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play “Happy Birthday” on guitar. This bday arrangement combines picking and strumming, and it has a little bit of a country feel to it. You can download the Happy Birthday Tablature below the lesson video for free. Thanks for watching!
