10 Great Country Guitar Lessons on YouTube

13 Great Country Acoustic Guitar Lessons on YouTube

As we all know, YouTube has a wealth of lessons and “how to play” tutorials for guitar.  If you want insights into playing a particular song, riff, technique, or for exploring a new genre, it’s the perfect place to search.

A quick disclaimer:  I don’t normally recommend YouTube for longterm guitar lessons.  Why?  Well, it’s too fragmented and non-sequential to develop guitar skills over the long haul.  It’s better to sign up for a structured set of video lessons. (You can check out something like JamPlay or ArtistWorks.)

If you’re not a tried’n’true country acoustic player, here’s 10 great lessons that will get y’all going with some fun country guitar.

Videos were selected for quality, number of views, brevity, and with an eye towards covering a variety of topics – i.e. strumming, licks, styles, and levels of playing.
