In this guitar lesson, we’ll apply several of the country riffs we’ve studied in this course by learning how to play two country lead guitar solos in D over “I’m From The Country” by Tracy Byrd. Before we learn the solos with tablature, I’ll give you a quick overview of how the solos are structured around the rhythm guitar chord progression. After you master the solos, practice along with our full-length country backing track in D.

Brand new lesson! This should be a great lesson for those of y’all wanting to add a bit more dynamic melody to your country & bluegrass lead guitar and fill riffs. We’ll go over some great tips for how to structure solos around a rhythm progression and other good stuff like that. Let me know if y’all like the “Tips & Tricks” video and I’ll add more of that style breakdown going forward.
Another awesome lesson Devin! I can’t wait to get started on this one tomorrow. Also, great job on the Tips & Tricks overview video. I would like to see more tips like that in the new lessons. Great job all around.
good idea !
Thanks for the backing track and the solo is just amazing and so fun to play!
Thanks Jocelyn, glad you like it!
Man I have to say you really have the best guitar lessons online. Consistent and just great videos! Thanks so much for all that you are doing.
Great lesson Devin!
Good one Devin, there’s a lot to like and learn in this one. I really like this on the acoustic and might grab bits and go for it on electric next. Always impressed with your lessons. Thanks! Geoff
Devin, I really haven’t been logging in much but this morning I just enjoyed specifically concentrating on the tips&tricks ..the eight notes and timing is so important and useful for me at this time.. I was never sure why a metronome was so important even for advanced level players.. So I do understand you and why and how even these basics lessons serve well for not just beginners. The play through with tab revealed this is good practice for me. Okay enjoy cheers!
