Lesson ID: A0176

In this guitar lesson, we’ll work on some red dirt country strumming in this style of Tyler Childers. First you’ll learn a country strumming pattern that is modeled after the strumming pattern Tyler Childers uses in his song “Whitehouse Road”. Then we’ll practice this strumming pattern over a couple chord progressions in drop D tuning with our capo on the second fret. After we practice the strumming pattern a bit, we’ll add some chord embellishments to our strumming to give it a nice red dirt country sound. Later in the lesson we’ll also work through an intro riff in the style of Tyler Childers. Overall this is a great lesson for learning some useful drop D chord embellishments that will spice up your country rhythm guitar. Please support Tyler Childers on iTunes and check out more of his songs on his YouTube Channel.
