If you’ve ever thought that rhythm guitar wasn’t an exciting part of the guitar playing experience, you’ve been SORELY missing out! There is much, much more to rhythm guitar than power chords and such. In fact, I would go as far as to say the best guitarists of all time are great rhythm players!
You might not realize it, since we tend of think of great guitar players as great lead players. But the foundation of what makes a lead guitarist great is their sense of rhythm. You can play all the scales and arpeggios lightning fast, but if you have a bad sense of rhythm, you’re not going to get the paid gigs. I know this from firsthand experience.
When GMM does free guitar lessons, we do them based on what we learn in the real world as working musicians. I’m telling you that rhythm guitar should play a much more important role in your life as a guitar player.
In this video we’re going to look at what I consider to be the #1 most important technique when it comes to playing rhythm guitar. This one technique will set you up for playing the most solid and hard-hitting rhythm guitar parts, no matter what style of music you play!
I’ll show you how this technique works in multiple genres, and how you can apply it yourself. Once you learn to play rhythm guitar like this, you won’t be able to un-learn it 😉
You wouldn’t think that you could impress people by being a great rhythm player, but trust me, you would definitely impress other musicians! Especially your band mates or friends you jam with.
By the end of this video, you’ll know how to approach rhythm guitar playing in the same way that the best guitarists of all time do. And take notice over time of how it shows up in your lead playing as well!
I want you to use this rhythm guitar technique from now on. And pretty soon you’ll be known as that guitarist with the epic, head-bobbin’, stank face-inducing rhythm guitar style. Not only will your fellow musicians appreciate you, but you’re much more likely to get hired on with bands on that fact alone!
If you start playing rhythm guitar this way and notice your foot tapping or your head bobbin’, you can bet that’s what everyone else will do when they hear you play.
Rock On 🤘🏼
