Hi Justin, which scale are you using in your example after the lick?
I think it's F major pentatonic for the most part, has an added E note.
I say this because blues and country are my main styles and I do more lick using about the same notes, but my lick are F based so I don't play the open string lick that lead back to C.
It works over a C but I think it is F major pentatonic.
Country is great but it follows chord tones more than any scale.
i think it is really in the C major , G shape, I see Justin's is paying the C , A and G forms , there is not much difference in the C ,F and G so I was seeing the F C shape which I do alot of licks in
This seems a cool start, I do more real country lick were the bends take place before picking them.
