  • Hi GMC!

    This lesson is all about the beat in music. I'll show you how to find the beat and also introduce you to simple counting and ways of keeping the time (beat). Material we'll cover is essential for understanding rhythm guitar and will be extra useful for those looking to play chord strumming songs and figure out the strumming rhythm patterns.

    I'll show you how concepts covered in this lesson relate directly to guitar and strumming and this will be a good basis for further rhythm study of note values, rhythms, time signatures as well as metronome practice.

    This is a simple yet crucial lesson I want you to focus on as it is possible to skip these fundamentals in the early beginning and then figure out years later what kind of mistake was done which also means lost practice time.

    Get in touch with me! I want to help you with your guitar playing and I'm open to any questions you might have. Starting on the guitar might appear easy, but there are lots of tricky little things and details which might get missed or need further clarification so don't hesitate to let me know, ok?

    Send me an email to [email protected] - I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
