Essential lead guitar techniques for modern country
Remember the cutting heads scene in Crossroads between Ralph Macchio and Steve Vai? Macchio ultimately kicked the devil in the behind with some blazing classical guitar runs (although most of us felt that Ry Cooder's slide work did the job just as nicely). Well, let's trip out a bit and recast that scene; in addition to the blues, rock and classical styles, we bring in top players from the jazz, metal, fingerstyle and country guitar worlds, and then let them all go at it for a few rounds. Last man standing? No doubt about ... the country dude stays above ground and the rest of the boys hang with Beelzebub for the rest of their days.
No other style of popular music demands such mastery of right and left-hand techniques as does country lead guitar. Mixed with even modest musicality, country lead guitar turns heads and blows minds. That's why so many blues, jazz and even rock guitarists beg, borrow and steal techniques from country players. And many have been known to convert wholeheartedly to the style just to satisfy their hunger for guitaristic challenges on their quest for virtuosity.
