Watch the Country Slide online guitar lesson by James Hogan from 50 All-Purpose Pentatonic Licks

Lick #40 “Country Slide” is based on the A Major Blues Scale. (A,B,C,C#,E,F#) the A Major Blues Scale is a close cousin to A major Pentatonic. Since it’s so closely related I decided to add a great country styled lick based on this sound. In fact, this scale is interchangeable with Major Pentatonic and I often lump Major Blues and Major Pentatonic licks together. If you learn one country/bluegrass lick in your life learn this one! Then, move it around to other keys.
