I'm not a fan of country music, But I wouldn't mind trying To learn a few licks, and riffs to try to expand my own style, and riff vocabulary. Any recommendations? (Easy Stuff)

I am not a large fan of country, but imo Slash is inspired bya lot of it - a good, easy example to learn is the intro to patience, which includes a few nice country licks.
look at some Hank Williams and Hank Williams Jr. Also Johnny Cash, Brad Paisley and Marshall Tucker Band(more country than a lot of the southern rock bands). You should learn chickin pickin' and the major scale is used a lot in country. Open G and D are usually the tunigns for country slide too.
