Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.

Crappy? Anything by Rascal Flatts.


Really though, country isn't that hard to play. If you are talking lead, then learn how to twang a bit. Rhythm is generally simple, often a blues shuffle.

really, just play anything "pop-style" and throw in a steel guitar and lyrics written by a three year old...
but i usually just play around with the G, C and D chords cuz it seems like thats all they use. be sure to twang up your voice.

A lot of country is difficult to play. Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Jerry Reed, Glen Campbell, Chet Atkins! Just to name a few. Ignorance has led to people believing its easy.

Theres an article on UG about country licks.
I had my hands in the river,
My feet back up on the bank,
Looked up to the Lord above and said,
"Hey man, Thanks"
