You Are My Sunshine in the Style of Gene Autry

Lesson 11 – Country & Bluegrass Rhythm Course
Lesson ID: A0151

In this guitar lesson, we’ll practice some classic country strumming patterns over a country & bluegrass version of “You Are My Sunshine”. This arrangement incorporates a simple melody line with your standard Carter style “boom chick” country strumming. We’ll also work on a few country guitar fill riffs in the style of Gene Autry. Overall this is a great guitar lesson for developing accurate picking and strumming.

Devin, not sure why we hold the C/G position thru out all the measures ( killer on the hand) when it is really only used at the opening, couldn’t we just hold the C position after the opening?

A great lesson incorporating lists of different techniques using both the left and right hand. A simple song made complex and interesting. Now if I can just get the speed up!
