I posted on Ear Training just a second ago, now its on to another topic - Rhythm Playing. GMC is primarily based on lead shred guitar and lately I have been learning rhythm guitar. Unsuprisingly, it has even improved my lead playing as well. I have also noticed even shredders such as Eddie Van Halen are also amazing at rhythm, even stating, "I am a rhythm player who also solos." Its also a blast to mix rhythm and lead parts into a guitar piece. No matter what style you play, rhythm and chordal melodies play an important role.

Along with the lessons at GMC on rhythm, even the "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" lesson, what songs/techniques/chord progressions/ Theory has improved your rhythm playing.

For me, MI's (Musician's Institue) "Rhythm Guitar: The Complete Guide" has been a gold mine of imformation relating to chords and what not.

So let's discuss and let the cat out of the bag. Share your rhythm secrets, and what has or has not worked for you.

Thanks in advance. biggrin.gif

Whats up everybody, this is my first post so I will introduce myself first. My name is Richard, I'm 18 and live in Houston, Texas. I've been lurking the forums for a couple months and been playing for little over a year now with great success.

On to the Topic: Ear Training ohmy.gif

Lately, I have understood the value and importance of Ear Training relating to guitar, but I am somewhat lost. I have been going to and practicing recognizing intervals and notes. I have also been practicing more rhythm guitar and chords and such, which I believe help with the ears. So my question to you GMC'ers, what components of ear training are most important and what techniques/programs/websites have improved your ears? Ideally, I would like to essentially have perfect pitch and know what key any song is in, and also be able to transcribe music.
