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.
