So at practice last night I had to come up with an intro riff and rhythm stuff for a pretty generic chord sequence (B/F#,\G#m/E) with a straight 8th note type groove, and I was stuggling to come up with something interesting or non cliche.

Any suggestion

Anyone fancy doing a series of Rhythm lessons touching on styles and approaches of people like EVH, Nuno etc, the ones that do some cool stuff that isn't just power chords?. The Steve Vai era Whitesnake lesson is awesome and even though some of it is too hard for me , there are great ideas in it.

Yea there are a few lessons already....

But still Not a bad idea at all.... Nuno's style really does turn standard chord progression into Monster riffing

That's a great idea. Those guitar players used to arrange really cool Rhythm guitars... you could heard the song without the singer and it would keep being interesting.... a series based on this would be great. I will work on something... smile.gif

Have you checked this lesson??

Great lesson idea wink.gif You'll notice really interesting rythms incorporate lead type elements in them quite often. It won't just be chords, it will be little flourishes, small scale runs, single notes, pull offs, etc. Being able to add these things in to your rythm playing is important in order to make them stand out.

I also think Nuno's work with Extreme, say in , Pornograffitti is just unbelievable, he's such a creative guitarist, the mix between rhythm and lead is just so likeable, I would love to see lessons in GMC in his style

Nuno's guitar is one of my favourite, I've lusted over the N4 vintage for a long time.

I'm glad there's the interest in this. Especially since Rhythm work is 80% of what we guitarists end up doing, or even more looking at the thread about the lack of solos in Modern music
