I improvise a little country here and there, practice up on double stops and learn your major scales. This has always got me through. Check out Danny Gatton for some ideas.... hot licks and on the mellow side listen to Chet..
I agree with Paul. When I get tossed into a Southern County Rock song, I live in the major blues scale.
The simple way to think of this box is either to pull it up two frets (eg in A):
to Major Box:
-10(A)--12- (get some heavy bending on that 12th fret)
or to play in the relative minor - 3 frets down - F#m in this case
