Now we're going to get into a fast action train beat, or a faster country groove in the key of A. This one is moving pretty fast so I'm going to play a lot of cool different stuff. I'm going to showcase some open string guitar licks, like in the key of D, and I'm going to fly around in a scalar way in the key of A and use some cool things where I do some steel guitar bends. I'm definitely going to use the double stop horizontal run that you learned in section 1. I'm going to mix it up with a really cool blend. This is a 14-15-11 kind of thing that rolls by a couple of times. It's really fast and a whole lot of fun. So hold onto your hats because it's going to be a good time!
