Outlaw Country Drop D Riffs and Strumming

Lesson ID: A0202

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a few country guitar riffs in the style of Charlie Daniels. We’ll also use the chord progressions from “Long Haired Country Boy” by Charlie Daniels to practice some country strumming patterns and chord embellishments. Overall, this is a great lesson for developing that outlaw country sound on acoustic guitar.

Important Note: Everything that we cover in this lesson will be in Drop D Tuning D-A-D-G-B-E.
