Country Bluegrass Flatpicking Licks Key of D

Lesson ID: A0109

In this guitar lesson, I’ll teach you four classic country and bluegrass guitar licks in the key of D. If you play these licks slowly, they’ll have a nice outlaw country sound. If you speed them up, they’ll sound great with bluegrass songs. We’ll break down all four licks with tablature and we’ll also discuss the scales that are used to create key of D lead guitar licks that sound country and bluegrass. Check out our Bluegrass Lick Library to learn more country & bluegrass flatpicking licks.
