Hi guys,

 

My name is Anders, and I'm from Sweden.
I'm looking forward to practise Country basics and hopefully evolve in 2021.

Do you have any suggestions where to start, and continue thereafter?

 

Best Regards,

Anders

I came as a relative beginner at 64 years old. I went to lessons and searched from the oldest to the newest. Then I ravaged every lesson until I found one I could plink out. Now,  I still plink but there’s a couple I can play pretty good. I love Jerusalem Ridge, Johnnie Cash Walkups, Banks of the Ohio, Travis Picking, and Country Strumming in the Style of Randy Travis. The Riffs catalogue is fantastic and the scales are priceless. The backing tracks are an excellent practice tool with the scales.

@rg Hi, and Thank you!

Well. Taught myself in a total of 3-4 years.

@anders-eskilsson Anders since you've been playing a while there is a ton of stuff you could jump into.

I guess it just really depends on what you want to learn right now whether that's guitar licks, cross picking, hybrid picking, Travis Picking or songs.

 

Is there something specific you're really interested in learning?

@rg Great answer.

Well, a bit of everything; both to learn and also what I might prefer to play.

I started with the 'Intro to Rhythm Guitar Fill Riffs course' and will try to work my way through it.

 

Thanks

@anders-eskilsson Cool, yeah that's a good place to start. 

One of my favorite lessons is the Song "A Country Boy Can Survive" by Hank Williams Jr.  See link directly below 

https://countryguitaronline.com/hank-williams-jr-country-rhythm-fill-riffs/

 

Another is Man of Constant Sorrow

https://countryguitaronline.com/man-of-constant-sorrow/

 

I love these songs and they have some good licks and tricks to learn.

Welcome to CGO, Anders! As far as where to start, Devin has the lessons organized by stars (one for easiest, five for more challenging lessons). You could start out that way or take on the guitar courses. I started with the Country Strumming course myself, and it was an education since I wasn't real familiar with country music.

Welcome Anders. I started with Country Strumming then Fill Riffs and Lead Guitar. I needed lots of real basic practice so these have been great for me.
