Fastest Guitars in the Country: 10 Essential Country Shred Guitar Songs
Guitar World picks 10 essential country shred guitar songs.
Jimmy Bryant, “Down Yonder”
Fastest Guitar in the Country
Jimmy Bryant (guitar) and Speedy West (pedal steel) recorded incredible instrumental duets during the Fifties that still sound amazing, but Bryant also released some great, overlooked albums on his own during the Sixties.
“Down Yonder” from the aptly titled Fastest Guitar in the Country album downplays his usual jazzy flourishes in favor of genuine country twang played in Bryant’s inimitable lightning fast style. Bonus points for the ultra-cool Voxmobile on the cover, which Batmobile and Dragula designer George Barris built for Bryant.
