Country Songs

At its inception in the 1920s, country music had roots primarily in blues and western folk music, before developing into a number of sub-genres that give us the country guitar style.

Country guitar is characterized by simple chord progressions, fast picking sequences and a lot of major scales along with a generally a fast-paced, bluesy technique. Other stylistic marks include hybrid picking and heavy string bending.

Some of country music’s most notable guitar players would include Chet Atkins, Brad Paisley and Johnny Cash.
