Tyler Childers “Nose on the Grindstone” Strumming

Lesson ID: A0189

In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn how to play some chord embellishments in the style of “Nose on the Grindstone” by Tyler Childers. First, we’ll work on a few country strumming patterns that’ll help you get that “dirty” country sound Tyler Childers has in a lot of his songs. Then, we’ll work through two practice progressions and practice our country strumming. After that, you’ll learn an instrumental break that’s loaded with country chord embellishments in the style of Tyler Childers.
