In this guitar lesson, we’ll take a look at how to play country and bluegrass rhythm fill riffs in the key of D. I’ll teach you six of my favorite fill riffs in the key of D and we’ll practice them with a nice country and bluegrass rhythm progression. We’ll also talk about the guitar scales we’re using here in the key of D to get this country and bluegrass sound. Download the practice progression tablature below the video.

Great stuff Devin, love the bluesy country riffs
Very good lesson Devin! By the way thanks for fixing my video problems…you really take care about your students…thanks again!
Wow such a great website you have here. Quality lessons
Thanks Devin, I really enjoyed this one
Howdy, new member here. You have a great selection of lessons and excellent teaching. Enjoying it all very much. Would you mind me asking what Martin you’re playing here? Sounds really nice.
Thanks for signing up! Sure, it’s a Martin D-16 GT. I bought it used about six years ago and it has been a great guitar for the price.
These riffs are really helping my guitar playing thanks Devin.
Now this is what I need in my playing. Thanks again Devin.
Devin you have so many out standing lessons it’s hard to stay on just one. I have canceled an online account with another instructor and this is going to be my main lessons account. Thanks again.
One of my favorite…thanks Devin to explain the fingering it helps me a lot!
Fantastic lesson. This brings into focus moves that i sort of already knew, but clarifies it and clears up some loose ends that was making my playing messy. Very useful!
Got to love these “backwards” slides. Took a bit of practice to get used to sliding the “wrong” way, but the results are great, and really bring out the country sound.
Devin, how about a couple of Christmas country songs please. I love your course by the way
Hi Devin, new member here. Love this lesson and once I get it down I am going to start working on the course that it is a part of. Have a question for you, I am using my ring finger at times on the rifts instead of my middle finger like the way your teaching us. I just turned 70 and this just feels more natural to me, but do you see this as making more advanced playing in this style more difficult?
