Intro: One-Man Country Band

Previous Lesson
Next Lesson

Many classic country recordings and live performances feature a full band with bass, drums and all the bells and whistles like pedal steel and electric guitars. But in their essence most country songs are built on the foundation of an acoustic guitar strumming basic chords to accompany a singer. That means you can play Country Music completely by yourself if you learn to master some very basic tools that we'll explore in this chapter. In this first tutorial we'll focus on the right hand work and bit-by-bit work our way up to a simple and super useful country strumming pattern that you can use to play literally hundreds of country songs! So let's get started!

Hi, it looks like he really gets going with the actual tutorials here: There is some TAB on the screen and you can also download the sheet music by clicking on the "print notation" button. You would do this for each of the tutorials. I hope this helps.
