Course: Country Style Level 1

Welcome to the brand new, updated Country Style Level 1 Course!

In this course Anders will show you how to use the knowledge and skills you learned in Guitar Fundamentals 1 and 2 in order to start playing country style guitar. He starts with the foundation of all things country by building a basic vocabulary of chords, progressions and strumming patterns on acoustic guitar. Next, he adapts and expands those ideas to electric guitar. Then after you've got a handle on rhythm playing he introduces basic lead guitar ideas and skills on both acoustic and electric.

There are lots of examples and practice tunes to play along with. The course is rounded out by a chapter on gear and tone so you can complete your understanding of how to play country style guitar!

Chapter 2: Electric Rhythm Tools – Vol 1.

In this chapter you will learn how the electric guitar might compliment the acoustic rhythm parts they learned in the previous chapter. The acoustic guitar covers the harmony, so electric guitar is more of a rhythm instrument in this context.
