Country 1 - Melody 2

Animated Country 1 - Melody 2 tab by ActionTab on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This is from the Jamzone where we are building basic Country Tunes.

Make sure you've done the previous Country Melody, so this one will be much easier to follow. We use exactly the same melody / turnaround, except this time we add a simple country lick at bars 4, 8 and 12. This will make our melody a little more interesting, and fun to play!

Bar 4 - On the last E bar, use this little country lick.

Bar 8 - On the last A bar, do the same lick, but from the open A note this time.

Bar 12 - Same lick as for Bar 4.

Looking at Bar 4 - Notice that we start by playing some notes of the E major scale, but we include the passing minor 3rd note (G) too...

E Major: E - F# - G - G# - A - B - C# - D# - E

Exactly the same melody is played for the A chord at Bar 8, except starting on the A string.

Just add these little licks into the melody we've already shown you, then you'll be ready for the next Country Melody development!
