“One Bud Wiser” Country Guitar Riffs

one-bud-wiser-acoustic-country-guitar-licks-lesson
Lesson ID: A0203

In this guitar lesson, we’ll take a close look at some acoustic country guitar licks from “One Bud Wiser” performed by Gretchen Wilson in her documentary called Undressed. This documentary follows Gretchen as she walks you through her life on the road and proves that the music doesn’t stop once the show’s over. It’s a VIP pass to an intimate dressing room jam session with Gretchen’s band, crew, and anyone else that joins in. We’d highly recommend checking out this documentary on YouTube — you can buy or rent it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zU9jlsIXio. Throughout their jam session, Gretchen’s lead guitarist plays some amazing acoustic country guitar licks that are definitely worth learning.

After we study the guitar licks from “One Bud Wiser”, we’ll take a quick look at a couple chord progressions from this song that you can use to practice the licks.

IMPORTANT: We’re using key of A chords and guitar scales in this lesson, but we’ll have our capo on the 1st fret like Gretchen’s band.

My New Favorite Guitar Picks

best triangle guitar picks for flatpicking bluegrass

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:

Overall, this is a great lesson for developing that outlaw country sound on acoustic guitar.
