    I know this is a very broad question but can you give any tips on this playing style? Are you mostly just improvising around major pentatonic scales or do you have a toolbox of patterns and runs that you mix and match? I want to learn to play like this and although I know my scales and could probably sit for a few days (or months!)and painstakingly transcribe what you just played, I don't know if that's the best approach to developing this type of style. Thanks!

    Hi, thanks for the kind words. I actually have pretty limited experience playing country.i play mainly jazz and fusion. I did go through a little phase many years ago where I was checking out Danny Gatton, Albert Lee and Brent Mason. I might have picked up a few licks form them. I don’t like planning anything before playing and I don’t have any runs that I try to insert in. Whatever comes out comes out. It’s mainly just mixolydian and Major scales mixed in with some chromatic notes. Some bends and double stops etc. I don’t really use any hypbeis picking at all. I hope that helps.

    In your hands a "wrong note" just becomes more opportunities, so was it a wrong note?

    My point was, you had no wrong note, and I was responding to someone else. But it was a complement. Out of context it sounds odd.

    I was going to ask the same question. It seems like nowadays there are hoards of amazing players that never venture out of their bedroom or home studio.
