Beginners Rhythm Challenge
Rhythm is essential.
As you progress through your guitar journey, your ability to play rhythmically is going to be the most important element of your playing. In fact, simply realising that rhythm is the #1 most important aspect of your playing, is going to be a huge step on your journey. It is very common to consider chords, scales or even the physicality of playing more important. It isn't. Rhythm is the boss, and needs as much, if not more attention than anything else.
"Trust me, without a good groove, no matter how many notes you play, or how many chords you know, you will never sound like a top guitar player."
The great news is, as a beginner, if we learn how to work with rhythm now then we can gain the understanding of groove you need to grow as a guitar player. As a beginner, it can be hard to keep up with various terms, such as 8th notes, 16th notes, straight, swing, downstroke 8ths etc. and even if intellectually you understand them, applying them to the guitar, against a beat, is a whole other ball game!
Interactive rhythm learning
So, in this course I will take you on a 6 lesson interactive rhythm journey. At its core we will be using a single drum beat, and with that grounding, work our way through every type of core groove you will need to learn at this stage. My aim is to give you the skills to hear any rhythm guitar part in any song, and know how to achieve that with your strumming hand... Just by listening! We'll do this by working interactively, so make sure you have your guitars on your laps as you're working through the lessons!
Once you've worked through this course, you will have a complete understanding of rhythm, but more importantly, you will understand how to apply the theory and decipher (or create) any groove you like!
