Watch the Country Survival Guide: Lead Guitar online guitar lesson by Jason Loughlin from Country Guitar Survival Guide: Lead Edition

Thanks for checking out my course. I know some of these materials can be challenging to get together. Fold these techniques into your playing one at a time. Maybe start with one lick or one concept to have prepared for the next time you play out or jam with friends. Always set yourself up for win-able battles. Trying to throw in ten double stop licks into your solo tomorrow night may be an unreasonable expectation. I look forward to hearing your feedback and answering any questions you might have.

You can check out my sherpa classroom here at Truefire if you have any questions or would like to further your studies of country style guitar playing, its techniques, concepts and repertoire. You can also contact me directly through my website at about lessons, to hear my music, find out when I'm playing or just say hi. Please check out my other Truefire courses and my last record Peach Crate. You hear a lot of the techniques covered in this course on that record.

Jason Loughlin has performed or recorded with Amos Lee, Lesley Gore, James Burton, Rachael Yamagata, Nellie McKay, Jim Breuer, The Sweetback Sisters, Marshall Crenshaw and Mike Viola. His debut release Peach Crate was received with critical acclaim in 2011. He current lives in Brooklyn, New York where he teaches, performs and runs his record label Big Pop Records.
