Lesson ID: A0175
In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play a guitar solo in C for bluegrass and country. First we’ll play through the solo arrangement at a slow pace with tablature on the screen. Then we’ll break down the entire solo line by line and we’ll cover some helpful techniques for improvising solos in C. After you learn the guitar solo arrangement, practice along with the country & bluegrass backing track in the key of C.

New lesson! Hope y’all have a good weekend. Keep sending me your lesson requests…top menu under Contact > Request a Lesson. I’ve got a pretty busy week coming up but I’ll try to be available on the live chat as much as I can if you have any questions about anything. – Devin
Got it Devin…..Great lesson….already incorporating some of these runs into Black Mountain Rag!
I like this one…thanks Devin!
Great lesson Devin ! Nice to see the D16 again
Thanks Frans! I just put some new strings on the D-16 by Straight Up Strings and I’ve really been enjoying picking on it lately. Good to change things up! Hope everything’s going well –
I just sold my D16 and bought an almost new D18, i am very happy with it , sounds fantastic and my left hand has a little more space , still enjoying your lessons . Thanks man !
Nice! I’ve actually been considering doing that as well…upgrading to the D18 to get a little more guitar and it’s about the same price. I’ve always wanted an older D18 for some reason. Sounds like you found a good one.
Thank you for this lesson, Devin, I’m learning a lot. So good that you explained the bend and release-bend in measure 12, because I never did a bend before! I practiced the bends a lot and now I’m able to incorporate these kind of bends in other solos. I’m so glad.
Awesome, glad that helped out! It’s a fun thing to add to your solos. Thanks for the comment!
This is great! I wrote a little bluesy song called “Fire, Bacon, Rum” (I think you can guess what it’s about) Devin’s solo in C fits into the song perfectly.
