Video: Daniel Donato Teaches Cosmic Country Tricks

Daniel Donato's a universal ambassador for what he calls Cosmic Country—a mix of country twang, jazz theory, and Grateful Dead–style psychedelia that he's made into his own personal sound.

If you've seen some of his previous videos with us, like where he demonstrates Garcia-tinged chromatic riffs or teaches his country hybrid picking style, you already know some of the Cosmic Country threads. In our new video above, he's here to show a few new concepts and blend them all together.

Such concepts include superimposition—where you layer a different chord on top of another—especially when playing a minor fifth over top of a major chord.

Watch the full video above to start your own journey down the Cosmic Country plain.
