Watch the Rumba Blues 3 online guitar lesson by Carl Verheyen from S.W.A.T. Blues

Country guitar playing is something I enjoy doing. There's a lot of virtuosity in the style. Open string, 1st position playing is mostly associated with the acoustic bluegrass style and this lesson explains that in detail. I show a few important licks in the style before moving into the double stop licks that Albert Lee does so well. A week after taping these videos I played a concert in Los Angeles with Albert and rekindled my love of this style. Very inspiring!
