JTC is incredibly pleased to bring you Nashville guitarist and Shrapnel Records artist Johnny Hiland’s first 20 Licks release!
'I will tell you this folks, these 20 licks will change your chicken picking life, that's for sure! – Johnny Hiland'
Johnny is a world renowned and prestigious country, rock, blues and bluegrass guitarist so when it comes to laying down some tasty country licks, this is the man you need to turn to!
Whether you are a seasoned country professional, or you'd like to take your first steps into the wide world of country guitar, this is THE pack that you need to download. Each lick comes complete with fast/slow videos, audio and bonus notes to help you pick apart and learn exactly how to achieve your favourite country guitar solos. Choosing DELUXE will equip you with 20 great breakdown lessons taught by Johnny himself, where he guides you through every note and technique to help you master these classic country licks.
Johnny says 'I have had an absolute blast making this package for you guys to learn. These are my favourite country licks that I use, and with this package we are going to study them one by one so that you can start using them in your own playing too! I want to say a big thanks to my studio engineer Jay Buchanan for all of his hard work, Jim Lightman for the studio access, and Steve Hardesty for the wonderful video work! I could not have done this without them, and I hope this series brings everyone a whole load of guitar picking fun!'
Inside these licks you will find plenty of country techniques such as double stops, chicken picking, multiple types of country bends and slides, hammer-ons and pull-offs, open string licks, chromatic passing tones and rich melodic country themes.
On the theory front you can expect to be working with Mixolydian scales, Pentatonic scales and the Blues scale amongst others. In the second half of the licks (over a Western Swing track) Johnny also takes a more jazz approach to his lines and hints at Super-Locrian scales, Diminished 7th arpeggios, and half/whole Diminished scales.
Don't let the theory scare you though, as these licks are just as applicable for jamming even if you don't understand the scales behind the licks. We have 2 great jamtracks included in this package - one upbeat country track in A and a western swing track in G. So for an absolute bargain price of £19.99 (DELUXE) you can put all of these fantastic country licks to great use and enrich your guitar playing forever!
As ever, we have included everything you need to practise and perfect the material in this package. There are video and audio tracks for you to watch/listen and study, accurately transcribed TAB/notation for you to analyse and master as well as backing tracks for you to practise every lick to, and jam out your own solos! We've even included some text notes to help you really get these parts down!
