This Toolkit is suited for guitarists who want to see major improvements in their rhythm playing.
This Toolkit Contains the Following:
Playing rhythm guitar is one of the most important skills a guitar player can master. However, many players think that learning rhythm begins and ends with knowing a few chords, when really, there’s so much more to it! It requires smooth hand and wrist movements, finding the beat, playing with “feel”, listening for changes, and embellishing in the moment. In this pack, Austin Filingo will help you revisit what you know about rhythm guitar and become a more percussive player.
4k & 1080p
To effectively play rhythm guitar, it helps to know the fretboard backwards and forwards. In this pack, Tim Stewart will cover basic chord progressions with common notes — plus chord inversions, CAGED concepts, and chord melodies in a few different playing styles. Once you have a good understanding of these fretboard fundamentals, you’ll practice each concept by playing along with a few fun backing tracks.
A big part of what makes rhythm guitar so compelling is the percussive nature of this playing style. In this pack, Trevor Gordon Hall will cover a variety of concepts, always emphasizing the importance of timing. First, he’ll help you make peace with your metronome, a vital tool for any rhythm guitarist. Then you’ll learn techniques like accent strums, using ghost strums to build groove, applying palm hits for a back beat, and so much more.
Once you understand the basics of rhythm guitar, it’s time to start practicing! In this toolkit, Charlie Stevens will review some of the most important chord types and rhythmic concepts, each accompanied by a detailed practice lesson that includes multiple exercises and repetitions. You’ll learn the boom-chuck beat (used most famously by Johnny Cash) along with suspended chords, bass runs, power chords, barre chords and more. But most importantly, you’ll learn to effectively practice all of your new skills.
This course is designed for intermediate to advanced players. If you have a basic understanding of rhythm — what 8th notes are and what 16th note triplets are — these lessons will help take your playing to the next level. In this pack, William Roberts will walk you through advanced concepts like composite rhythms, flipping polyrhythms, different types of clave rhythms and how they relate to polyrhythms, and how to solo with odd number groupings. You’ll even learn how to create contrary rhythms that happen at the same time!
This course is best for those who have some understanding of music theory, with a base knowledge of major and minor chords and their corresponding keys. In this pack, William Roberts will show you some of the most common alternate and open tunings. These tunings will give you the ability to do things that are not physically possible with a guitar that’s in standard tuning. We’ll run through the number system with the open tunings, explore different keys, and go through open tuning chord progressions. You’ll also learn to use pedal points and drone to create colorful explorations of different chords within a key.
