Watch the D Country Shuffle: Intro online guitar lesson by Johnny Hiland from Ten Gallon Guitar: Intros, Outros & Turnarounds
Country shuffle are one of my favorite styles to play. Why, you ask? Well, it's more moveable in a "scalular" way, which is really great, and a lot of fun. To get started with this intro, we had some pickup notes. One of the things I learned early on in my time in Nashville is that you can start on the root note and work down to the 4 to bring the song in. Let's check that out along with how I played the rest of the intro, going in to the first chord of the song.
