Personalized Tablature Transcriptions


In addition to posting my regular guitar lesson videos, I’m going to start offering an extra service through Country Guitar Online where you can request guitar tablature for any country/bluegrass guitar video or audio recording. I will tab out your request and send you the tablature + Guitar Pro file via email.

“One Bud Wiser” Country Guitar Riffs

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 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.

Triangle Guitar Picks for Flatpicking


I’m a huge fan of the size and shape of these Woodtone Guitar Picks. They also have minimal pick scraping noise which is really important to me for flatpicking. Overall they’re winners.

Here are my two favorite picks if you wanted to check them out. It’s pretty amazing how each of these picks produces such a different tone — you can hear the difference in the demo video.
