    In the previous lesson of this series, we learned the 5th position of the G minor pentatonic scale and I showed y’all some nice country and bluegrass riffs to get you started with your improvising. Now let’s make it sound even more country by adding in a couple extra “blues” notes. The blues scale is basically the minor pentatonic scale with one extra note added per octave — the sharp 4th or flat 5th degree. With the right combinations, these blues notes will really make your playing sound country and bluegrass. Let’s break down the blues scale, important fill techniques, and six country and bluegrass riffs with tablature.

    Visit to learn a ton of common bluegrass flatpicking guitar licks that you can play at your next bluegrass jam. We’ll break down all guitar lick with tablature and I’ll show you how you can use these licks with the majority of bluegrass songs. Several of these flatpicking licks are in the key of G and they’re designed to help you improvise your guitar solo in bluegrass fiddle tunes like Red Haired Boy, Salt Creek, Gold Rush, Cripple Creek, Cherokee Shuffle, etc.

    In this country guitar lesson, Anders will teach you a lick that can be used in a variety of ways. It's a short little run that can be used in virtually any position, in any key.

    The idea is to start with the root note of whichever chord you want to use and do a run of three half notes together. Guitar players can play this lick up and octave as well as down an octave depending on the position of the chord.

    Guitar players can combine the low and high octave licks together to make an even longer lick. It really is the ultimate country guitar lick for beginners. This is a great lick for playing over chords.

  • Shuffle Country Guitar Lesson - Country Guitar Licks | Wes Theobald

    4:47

    The country shuffle is a very classic feel in country music. It is found all over country records from the late fifties onwards. This kind of groove is also commonly known as the Ray Price shuffle and you can hear a good example of it on his recording Invitation to the Blues. Soloing over this kind of tune is a lot of fun because everything usually moves very predictably and it allows you to target all of the chord changes with ease.


    5 Country Shuffle Guitar Licks
    LICK ONE
    The first lick begins with a very classic country opening line. I use hybrid picking to hit the note on the high e string with my middle finger while playing the rest of the first bar with my pick. In the second bar I am picking the bent notes and using my middle finger to pick the fretted notes. The third and fourth bars feature pre bends that I pick with my middle finger. I occasionally add a muted pick before these kinds of prebends on the sixteenth note before the bend. It can give the line a bit more rhythmic interest.

    LICK TWO
    The second idea starts with a descending line where I am using my middle finger to again pick the high e string. The rest of the lick is pretty self explanatory. The last two bars follow the same technique as the first lick with the pick hitting bends, middle finger hitting the fretted note, and the middle finger hitting the pre bend.

    LICK THREE
    The third lick is the most difficult of the five. This one begins with a sweep up and arpeggio to the high G. The first bar is something I hear a lot in Charlie Parker and many other bebop players. The second bar is where the more difficult sections start with a double stop bend. In this bar, you bend the G string while keeping the B string fretted. These kind of bends can be hard to keep in tune. I often have the tendency to bend the B string slightly on accident so make sure you are not like me and keep everything in tune. The last two bars of the lick are a common pedal steel emulation bend. On these, you keep the A and D strings fretted and bend the G string up a whole step. Like the previous bend, this can also take some time to master and play in tune.

    LICK FOUR
    The fourth lick is something I learned from my transcription of a Duke Levine solo. I loved the way he started he solo using a half step bends to hit his intended note. In this lick using the half step bend helps make the two G notes that happen in the first bar sound slightly different and it helps make the lick a bit more interesting.

    LICK FIVE
    The last lick is one that I have stolen and used as an ending over songs like this more times than I can count. It's a classic pedal steel ending straight off a Buck Owens record and I find it also fits pretty well on guitar. I use a lot of hybrid picking on this one. All of the double stops and the two ending chords are all played with the middle and ring fingers (the pick takes the lowest note on the final chords).

    Welcome to 50 Country Licks You Must Know. In this course you will learn more than great licks. You will also learn the essential scales, techniques, phrasing, rhythms, articulations, and soloing approaches that are unique to country guitar playing. We take you through various eras and styles that are the roots of modern country music. There are a variety of examples that cover double and triple stops, pedal steel bends, banjo and dobro imitation, bluegrass licks, Travis picking, rhythm playing, Western swing, adding blues scale notes to major pentatonic licks, and some recording tricks of Nashville recording pros. The idea here is that each of these licks might open a new door for you and jump start your playing, maybe get you off of that plateau you have reached and send you in a new direction- developing your own ideas. So, enjoy. If you're not already in tune, we have a Standard Tuning file waiting in the media folder.

    Youll need to apply these examples to different keys and different positions. Before we begin, heres a tip on learning licks and using them. You should take the time necessary to transpose all of the licks you learn to all of the other keys. The best way to do this is to know the root of the lick and to know the names of the notes on the entire fret board. Well investigate more about the roots of the licks as we go along. To memorize the notes on the fret board first find all the Es that match the first string open E. That would be the first string open, second string 5th fret, third string 9th fret, fourth string 14th fret, and fifth string 19th fret. The same pitch can be found as a harmonic on the 6th string at the 24th fret position and at the fifth fret position. Spend some time memorizing this and then add some other notes to it. For instance, the first string open, 1st, and 2nd frets are E, F, and G. Now go to the second string and play E, F, and G at the 5th, 6th, and 8th frets. Then go to the third string 9th, 10th, and 12th, etc. I think you get the idea. Once you feel confident about your command of these notes in the different positions, do the same thing with the second string notes B, C, and D. To get a sharp you just move one fret toward the bridge. F is at the 1st fret. F# is at the second fret. Dont try to do this all at once. Take on one step at a time and before you know it (maybe a week or two if you work on it every day) youll know the entire fret board.

  • Country Guitar Licks - Traditional Country | Wes Theobald

    3:00

    This lesson takes you through a short solo over a traditional country groove and chord progression. These country guitar licks use a lot of important country techniques like oblique bends, different pick positions, and open string ideas.

    LICK ONE
    The first lick uses a technique calls oblique bends which involves striking two (or more) notes and then bending one of the notes while keeping the other ringing. This is often used to emulate the sound of the pedal steel. In this example, the oblique bends in bars 2 and 3 are used to create a G major (G-B-D) sound by bending the A note into a B while keeping the D note above ringing.

    LICK TWO
    The second idea in this example is a very simple eighth note idea. Getting the correct sound here involves changing where you are picking. Most people tend to pick towards the middle of the body but for this example you are going to pick towards the bridge. This gets a brighter, twangy guitar sound that works very well for country guitar licks that use the low wound strings. This sound is heard on a lot of the old Bakersfield country albums (Buck Owens, Merle Haggard).

    LICK THREE
    The third country guitar lick in this solo uses the same bridge picking technique as the second lick but adds open strings.

    LICK FOUR
    The fourth lick picks up the speed using sixths throughout. Using sixths in your soloing like this is a very common sound in country guitar playing. This lick ascends a G major scale using sixths up to C while filling the space around them with chromatic passing notes. Play the notes on the D string with your pick while using your ring finger to strike the notes on the B string.

    LICK FIVE
    The final lick begins with a simple descending G major scale. If this was played using only fretted notes it would not be very interesting. But when played using open notes you can get a very cool cascading effect.

    In this lesson we will study a bluesy country riff with a little Brad Paisley twist at the end.

  • Brad Paisley Guitar Lesson - Country Guitar Licks | Wes Theobald

    4:10

    Brad Paisley is one of today's most influential country guitar players. His aggressive sound with Vox AC30 and Dr Z amps set him apart from the traditional country tone of a blackface Fender. In addition to his sound, Brad Paisley is very unique in his playing style. Paisley's playing incorporates lots of open notes in his lines as well as many interesting rhythmic ideas. In this lesson, I will show how to play 5 Brad Paisley inspired lines over a train beat blues in G.


    5 Brad Paisley Guitar Licks

    LICK ONE
    The first lick is a sixteenth note run grouped in threes. I play this using hybrid picking with the pick taking the first note, the middle finger playing the second, and the ring finger playing the third. In the second bar, keep the bent note held while playing the notes on the high E string and then release it to the original pitch.

    LICK TWO
    The second lick is an idea inspired by Brad Paisley's instrumental tune, Nervous Breakdown. I play the first bar with hybrid picking rotating each picked note (not the pull of note) between the middle finger and pick. In the second bar, the muted note (marked with an X) can be played either on the low E string or on the D string. I prefer the sound of the muted note on the E string, but at full tempo it can be hard to pull off cleanly each time.

    LICK THREE
    The third lick is also played with hybrid picking. The pick plays the notes on the A string and the middle finger plays the notes on the G string. To get this lick sounding like Brad Paisley, really pop the string with your middle finger so it snaps off the frets a bit. I also tend to give the Bb on the G string a quick bend to give it a more aggressive sound.

    LICK FOUR
    This lick uses some of Brad Paisley's interesting rhythmic ideas. He frequently uses small groupings of sixteenth note triplets at the beginning or ending of sixteenth note runs. This is an easy way to add excitement to your fast solos and also keeps long sixteenth note runs from sounding boring. In this lick, I begin the line with a sixteenth note triplet hammer-on from an open string. Then the lick climbs up chromatically using pull-offs to the open G string.

    LICK FIVE
    The last lick covers the move from the V-IV (D7-C7) and back to the I (G7). It begins with sixths descending the scale using pull-offs to the open E string. The second bar is a standard dominant scale run but replaces a fretted E note with the open string at the end of the line. I use my middle finger to pick the open E string while the lower notes are picked. The last part of the second bar features a quick slide from C to Bb. I like to play this with a strong upstroke, raking the B and G strings before the fretted note (muting them with a combination of my picking and fretting hand).

    The second half begins with another sixteenth note triplet idea into a run of sixteenth notes. Using hammer-ons or pull-offs in ideas like this really make it a lot easier to play those lightning fast lines you hear on Paisley's records. It also uses lots of ringing open strings which help make everything sound a bit smoother and also keep the solo sounding full. Everything ends with a common bluegrass run in G.

  • Using Country and Bluegrass Licks to Build a Guitar Solo - Lead Guitar Lesson

    14:38

    Download the tablature and watch this lesson at

    Guitar Lick Library

    Lesson ID: A0160

    In the previous guitar lesson in this course, I showed you five of the most common ways to build a guitar solo and we talked about several techniques that will help you improvise better guitar solos. We also discussed the first type of solo in detail — the melodic guitar solo.

    In this guitar lesson, you’ll learn about the second type of guitar solo where we’ll play stock country & bluegrass licks over the top of a standard chord progression. First, I’ll teach you four stock country and bluegrass guitar licks. We’ll talk about how to use these licks to play a hard-driving guitar solo in a country and bluegrass style. Then, I’ll show you some more of my favorite lead guitar improvising techniques. As you’re studying the concepts in this lesson, be sure to also check out the Lick Library and Guitar Scale Charts that we have available at Country Guitar Online. After you complete this lesson, practice your country & bluegrass improvising over the backing track to “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” in the key of G. Lesson tablature is available for download below the video.

    And here is the Building Powerful Guitar Solos Course Outline

    In future lessons in this lead guitar course, we'll continue to build on these improvising concepts and by the end of this series you will be able to improvise a lead guitar solo over any song in any key. We're mostly focusing on playing traditional country and bluegrass guitar solos using guitar scales and bluegrass guitar licks.

    If you want to learn more country and bluegrass rhythm guitar techniques, we also have a Classic Country and Bluegrass Strumming Course

    And you'll probably also like the most popular course that we have out right now...the Fill Riffs and Lead Guitar Course
