Hi all, Soo... I would consider myself pretty sufficient when it comes to blues/rock. But thats practically all I play, which isn't uncommon with electric guitar players, but I feel like it would benefit me greatly both in writing and playing. And I also feel a little self conscious about my playing not knowing jack about country, because up till now whenever I play country with someone(rarely ever, but have) I just play blues in the key. AND I actually REALLY LIKE older country music but have never really learned it because, I dont know, just never did. So now that I'm getting a tele I figure time to learn country! So I'm asking you guys for some help. I would like each of you guy's opinions on what 5-10 songs are essential in older country and western playing(Cash, Jennings, Hank Williams, George Jones, Willie Nelson) . I'm going to learn more than 10 songs but I'm trying to get a general idea for country playing. Please pardon my ignorance, as this is a subject I know very little about. So if anything I said is total nonsense or something correct me please. Also, no modern country please, I've heard it and I'm not crazy about it. Thank you!
