Can someone guide me to a lesson where I can learn how to create the Rhythm Guitar for any Lead Guitar?

So I can apply this even to any guitar tab from the lessons found here, or even if I write a lead guitar.

The easiest way to create backing tracks to play leads over is to simply choose a scale, then take your Root note/Tone and add the next two notes in said scale and play a power chord for each chosen note/position. Loop that and you have a rythm part that you can play lead over. It's that simple smile.gif Of course, it can get as complicated as you want to make it. But for starters, 3 Chord Rock will get you going.

If you don't mind bluesish rock, just pick a key, (say the key of A) and then play1/4/5 position of the major scale as power chords and solo in the key of A (Just start on the 5th fret E string, which is an A note.) and play the Blues/Pentatonic scale.

Hopefully this will get you going. Record some bits so we can see how your doing!

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

I tried your advice on a tab called "Luca Turilli's Exercises", everybody can find this tab on ultimate-guitar, and I found that the scale used is C, so I used C power chords and the next power chord the D power chord and so on.

The last measure is in another scale so I ended up using A power chord.

I think it sounds pretty good.
Let me know what you think. You have the .gp5 file attached.

I think you've got the idea! smile.gif Guitar pro files are great for composition, but they are not very good at letting folks hear what you are actually playing. I think you have the general idea of soloing, so I'd say record some solo bits! Audio only is fine. You can can upload to soundcloud and share that or use a web cam/cell phone and record a short vid and share via youtube. It always helps to be able to see what is being played smile.gif
