Five Simple Ways to Instantly Fuse Country Guitar with Blues and Rock

(Image credit: Cindy Moorhead)

Hey, guys! Doug Seven here from

Today, I’m going to answer a common question I get all the time from blues and rock players. It's about how to add a little bit of a country sound to your playing.

We’re going to move fast in this video because the techniques I’m going to show you today are simple and easy to learn, and you’re gonna want to get busy playing along with the jam tracks!

A bit of a warning: When you start tampering around with this style and these techniques, you will get addicted and want more.

If that’s the case, head on over to the website right now and browse through the myriad of free videos, or get one of our technique-focused guitar courses that you can instantly download—or get DVD’s shipped. (I recommend one of the DVD bundles).

In my opinion, there’s no other style that satisfies the soul as much as country guitar playing.

It features a unique use of techniques like:

  • Hybrid picking
  • Double stops
  • Triple stops
  • Open strings ...

... all to give you a totally different “voice” to speak with. You can “say” a lot more—and with more emphasis—with these new tools in your hands. OK, you’ve been warned!

Since 2005, Doug Seven has demonstrated his unique method of playing and teaching and has impacted more than 2 million guitarists in more than 68 countries. His transparent and humble teaching style is dedicated to the guitarist who wants to experience total control and command of his or her skill, no matter what level or style.
