Boot Scootin' - Overview is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from 1-2-3 Country.


Now we're in country rock territory. Boot Scootin' is a great country rock progression that will let us get used to a couple of common encounters. We will have to hang on the I chord long enough that we'll have to rely on our variation to keep it interesting. This means using all the lead approaches and any variation. We can make a lot of music out of this material. Towards the end of the progression the chords change very fast. This presents a different problem. Now we don't have time to play the complete licks. We have to just play pieces of them so that they fit the measure.
