Country Guitar Scales for Acoustic Guitar

Country Guitar Scales are worth knowing, they’ll save you hours of messing around. Really they are just Minor Blues Scales starting on a different note. I’ve done them in basic TAB and music notation for guitar.

Most guitar players want shortcuts, from my experience, these scales are the greatest shortcut for improvisation and soloing that I have ever encountered. People that can’t really solo of songs suddenly find that their guitar playing opens up.
