Watch the Country Guitar Boogie 1 online guitar lesson by David Blacker from West Coast Blues
If you dig the vibe of West Coast blues, you need to check out a few of the hardcore Nashville pickers, such as Brent Mason and Albert Lee. While not West Coast blues players per se, these guys are the masters at melding country, blues, rock and jazz and are a great resource for anyone looking to add some diversity to their playing.
This current crop of pickers evolved from a tradition started by Jimmy Bryant, Hank Garland, James Burton, Roy Nichols and Don Rich--each a wellspring of classic licks that work great within a West Coast blues context. "Country Guitar Boogie" is a first step into exploring the fusion of major and minor pentatonic lines with chromatic passing tones.
