Hey guys!

So I've recently caught fire again for guitar after a roughly 2-year lull. I really feel like I've got the motivation this time around to take my playing to a whole new level and am quickly falling in internet-love with GMC. wub.gif

As part of my rededication, I'm trying to be as introspective of a player as I know how to be. In examining my weaknesses it doesn't take long for my rhythm (or lack there-of) to come bubbling to the surface. Relative to my skills on lead, my rhythm-playing is in a sad state and desperately needs to be addressed. I don't have a problem (that I know of) with timing. I think this is more a result of my chronically neglected knowledge of chords. I can do open cowboy chords, power chords and Major barre chords (I know you can move a finger or two here or there to get new ones). But I believe there's more to it than that.

Can you guys point me to lessons that have really helped improve your rhythm playing? I can mash through most single note lead stuff (aside from super-fast stuff), but throw in a couple of chords and my goose is cooked. I'd appreciate your help on this and look forward to hitting these here boards more often!

If you'd like to gauge where my playing level currently is you check out my take on Sublime's Santeria solo. Or check my YouTube profile below for a couple of other songs I've got on there.

Welcome aboard man, I know how you feel. Go to video lessons page and choose advanced search on the right. Then choose the lessons category (for example rhythm/chords) or just type "rhythm" or "chord" inot the search. Also choose difficulty level.
