Texas Swing Chord Progression on Guitar

Lesson ID: A0199

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn a jazzy Texas swing rhythm guitar progression. First we’ll take a look at a must-learn Texas swing strumming pattern. Then we’ll work through a practice progression in the style of “Two-Step Down to Texas” by Miranda Lambert, Jack Ingram, and Jon Randall. Overall this is a great lesson for working on jazzy chord shapes and Texas swing rhythm guitar.

I can really get behind the western swing approach of bob wills, asleep at the wheel, Lyle Lovett or any of those influences. Thanks in advance and appreciate the lesson. It invites the fun back in to guitar.

Just watching a video recording of Austin City Limits with Miranda Lambert John Randall and jack Ingram playing “Two Step Down to Texas”. I recognized the chords right away

Great video, the only thing I personally would’ve preferred is somewhere to find out what all the chords were. What drew me to this one was the jazzy chords and I was hoping to be able to learn them and repurpose them possibly for my own purposes. Awesome arrangement though. New here and loving the videos.
