Lesson 6 – Rhythm Fill Riffs and Lead Guitar Course
Lesson ID: A0094

Now let’s make your fills sound even more country! In the previous lessons of this series, we’ve seen how the 5th position key of G major and blues scales overlap. The next step is to combine these scales into a “hybrid” country/bluegrass scale. See the Charts tab below for a diagram of this hybrid scale.

In video 1 of this post, I’ll break down the scales and give you some extra pointers on how you can start to combine the major and blues scales. In video 2, we’ll go over several nice bass note chord transition fills that use this hybrid country scale.
