Watch the Interweb online guitar lesson by Corey Congilio from 30 Modern Country Guitar Licks You MUST Know
This is a Brad Paisley lick that is over a G chord, but the progression will start on an Em then C. You'll notice how the lick ends on an open E that works perfectly with the Em chord. Even with "simpler" country progressions, it's still important to learn how to play licks that highlight chord tones. I'll explain how the phrasing of the lick is incredibly important here. More AC30 tone here too!
