In this lead country guitar lesson, I’ll show you how to think about playing lead by playing either the minor pentatonic, major pentatonic, or play around chord shapes. I’ll give examples of each of these techniques throughout the guitar lesson.

Here are a few other country lead lessons that I’ve created that follow these techniques:

  2. I watch your vids all the time, your one of my fave teachers on Y.T. and I happened to stumble onto this one. I am by no means a country fan but that may be changing lol. This video intrigued me to give this a try, just sounds so beautiful. Thanks as always.

  3. excellent explanation..good work..

  4. Also your style of teaching has helped me along the never ending journey and to create my own style . Maybe the complainers could just go quietly into the night and do the rest of us a favor!

  5. Brian – That's a pretty lead ….kudos!

  6. Thanks Brian, this is a very good lesson, and I appreciate your explanations and delving into theory to explain the how and why. I hope you don't let the complainers affect your teaching style and personality.

  15. Please don't let the handful of complainers change the way you teach. The verbal info here is helpful and needed for anyone looking for a "SLOW and EASY" lesson as the title suggest. I picked a few new things that are going to help me a lot. Thanks!

  16. Also, can you talk about your telecaster. I have a CS '63 reissue. Looks and sound much like yours. Is yours a reissue? Vintage? Neither? Thanks much.
