Also this one, because EDDIE SHAVER
If I could play half as well as Vince Gill, I would be twice as good of a player than anyone in my county & those that border it, as well.
The use of “Comfortably Numb” as the exemplar leads me in a more gentle direction, so I’m thinking more along the lines of this:
Vintage Glenn Campbell is another strong possibility. Gentle On My Mind. Wichita Lineman. Something like that.
I’m also really, really fond of this one from the Everly Brothers. It gives me personally a real comfortably numb vibe, along with a hearty dose of high lonesome.
Interesting because most country isn't riff based like R&R.
Only standard licks that come to mind would be Luther Perkins kinda Folsom Prison.... you know the kind of stuff you're required to KNOW!
Folsom Prison is the Smoke On The Water of country music!
Plenty of songs but few you can identify with 8 notes...
There's gotta be more but still on first coffee
Just about anything off Merle Haggard's "That's The Way Love Goes" album. In fact, all the playing on that album is amazing.
Solo is at 1:50 on the below.
Actually, your question made me go "I wonder...?" This was all I could find.
Ride the Hummingbird by Ricky Skaggs
Luxury Liner by EmmyLou Harris
Rhodes Bud Boogie by Leon Rhodes
Pretty much if you get even close on these, you’re playing at the gold standard level
This one is institutional, but is it country?
Okay, iconic solo with (about) eight notes and instantly identifies the song?
Solo at 1:20 by James Burton.
Yep! Can always tell when this one is firing up!
One of my favorites! Partial to Roy's version!
Listen to the confidence in the first 30 seconds...Stone country with plenty 'o attitude.
That's a great version. I've always liked the Louvin Brothers version. Amazing vocals.
Something a little more contemporary.
I like this album enough to throw up another one.
If your gonna go with Country guitar solos ( and I love playing Classic country)
IMO some of the best came from rockers who played Country:
Ramblin' Man- ABB
Peaceful Easy Feeling, Take it Easy, Tequila Sunrise- EAGLES
Dead Flowers- Stones
* really well-crated guitar solos
^^^ this ^^^
Off the same album, Ray provides a full encyclopedia of licks to learn on this tune... Highway 40 is the "single" of country licks, this is the "double album set". Not better, just more of it.
Gotta be a popular tune.
Luther - Fulsom Prison. But that’s rockabilly.
Don Rich - Act Naturally. Is Bakersfield chicken pickin’?
Pete Anderson - Little Sister.
