When you’re learning guitar, it’s fun to explore different types of music. Playing country guitar is fun and relatively easy to learn when you focus on easy country songs. Great county songs generally have a slow, easy pace and a memorable melody and chorus. This makes it easy for you to understand how the songs are supposed to sound, and helps you to play them correctly.

Basic Song Structure

Whether you’re playing country music or another style of music, you will learn the same basic song structure. Most songs have an intro, verse, bridge, and chorus. The verse and chorus are generally repeating patterns that may have slight variations, and the bridge, as the name implies, bridges the gap between the verse and chorus. Some songs also have an outro, which wraps everything up and leads you to the end.

Nearly all songs also have a melody and a rhythm. The lead guitarist plays the melody, while the backup guitarist plays the rhythm. Talented guitarists can play both lead and rhythm, but you won’t have to do that to play basic country songs.

There are a lot of great video tutorials to help you learn to play country songs. Try searching “country guitar lessons YouTube” on Google, and you will find thousands of results. To save you some time, here are some of the best YouTube videos to help you learn country guitar.
