Lesson ID: FL0003

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn one of the best country and bluegrass guitar licks to play over a D major chord when you have a song in the key of G. The guitar lick we’re working on today sounds best when you play it over two measures of D major chord followed by two measures of G major chord. You’ll be able to use this guitar lick all the time because this four measure chord grouping (D/D/G/G) is extremely common in country and bluegrass chord progressions.

After you learn how to play the guitar lick, I’ll show you how to use the guitar lick, and then we’ll play the lick in a simple country and bluegrass guitar solo. Near the end of this lesson, you can practice the guitar solo while I play the rhythm guitar chord progression at a couple different speeds.
