Learn a Country Lick Using Ringing Notes

Our new free lesson will teach you how to play a Cascading Country Guitar Lick. This original lick by Jody Worrell uses a series of ringing notes to create a textbook country sound. Jody will guide you through playing the lick with note by note instruction. You have several options when it comes to right hand technique. You can use just a pick, hybrid picking, or go with just fingers. After you learn the lick and get the tone you want, we’ll practice against the jam track to work on timing.

Learn a Beginner Country Guitar Lick

Our Basic Country Lick lesson will teach you how to play a simple lick over an A7 to D7 chord progression. The lick uses a mixture of double stops and single notes and focuses on hammer-ons and slides instead of more difficult bends. Jody will teach you how to play the lick with note by note instruction and then demonstrate it along with the rhythm track.

Learn a Country Rock Guitar Solo

Our new lesson by Jody Worrell will teach you how to play a Country Rock Guitar Solo over a D, C, and G progression. The solo will use a mixture of the D Major Pentatonic Scale along with chord tones. This solo was written in the style of Toy Caldwell and The Marshall Tucker Band. It’s an intermediate level piece that straddles the line of Country, Rock, and Southern Rock.

Working through the 12 bars, the solo will advance up the neck and use big bends to create a soaring climatic sound. Along the way, Jody will provide detailed instruction on how to play the solo correctly. You’ll learn special techniques like using your pick to mute the string at the top of a bend. Small tone choices like this will really help you define the sound of your lead playing.

Learn to Solo Like the Country Guitar Greats


Our Country Solos Lesson Package will teach you the twangy sound that legends like Vince Gill, Albert Lee, and more have used to create memorable guitar solos.

You can then practice these solos over the included jam tracks to work on timing and even start creating your own licks.
