Watch the Solid Drop D: Intro online guitar lesson by Johnny Hiland from Ten Gallon Guitar: Intros, Outros & Turnarounds
There was a gentleman in Nashville named Mike Henderson, and Mike was an extraordinary guitar player. Everybody in Nashville just couldn't get enough of Mike, they'd go out to hear him play every night. He was the one who showed me it was really cool to just play really simple and solid stuff, especially in drop D tuning. Of course, Marty Stuart also took up that style. Again, every intro doesn't have to be filled with a lot of notes and licks, it can be real simple. That's what we've done here - so let's take a look at our intro.
