Study 5: Big Rig Country - Performance is a video guitar lesson presented by Jason Loughlin and is sourced from Country Guitar Survival Guide: Rhythm.
Big Rig Country is study inspired by trucker country. Artist like Red Simpson, Dave Dudley and Del Reeves pioneered new sound driven by baritone vocals and low twangy guitar. Our electric rhythm guitar part starts by establishing a pattern and then soon starts filling with quirky fills using pinch harmonics, tone swells and rakes.
