For this tutorial you'll just need your standard Country equipment. Some kind of electric guitar with six strings and a bridge pickup. I'll be using my Telecaster, but any kind of electric guitar will work. You can even learn the techniques on an acoustic if that's all you have and then upgrade down the line. The most important factors to a good electric country tone, at this stage, is to be on the bridge pickup and to use a bright and clean tone from your amp. You can add a little reverb if you want to, but not too much.
