Fastest Guitars in the Country: 10 Essential Country Shred Guitar Songs
Guitar World picks 10 essential country shred guitar songs.
Phil Baugh, “Country Guitar”
Phil Baugh’s original Country Guitar album released in 1965 features numerous dazzling instrumentals, like “The Finger,” but the centerpiece is the title track where he performs uncanny imitations of several guitarists, including Chet Atkins, Billy Byrd, Hank Garland, Les Paul and Merle Travis, who all are worthy of inclusion on this list.
Baugh played on Merle Haggard’s early Bakersfield singles during the Sixties and during the Seventies moved to Nashville, where he played on sessions for countless hit records.
