  • Hello everybody!

    In this lesson you will learn how to play different types of grooves and play : on, ahead and behind the beat! The lesson will start with simple rhythms and will progress to more complicated figures. You will need to loop lesson parts and play along. It will help you develop your timing and be more creative rhythm guitar player.

    A few years ago I realized that if I wanted to be a studio musician and working professional I have to get my timing perfect so I came up with this little exercise
    that I am still practicing. It completely changed the way I am playing and now I want to share it with you. I hope you will enjoy this lesson!

    Fractal AXE FX
    Apogee ensemble

    I used only four chords in this lesson it's E9, F9, E7#9, F7#9


    F9 (When you are playing this chord make sure that your sixth string is muted)

    E7#9 (Jimmy Hendrix chord :)
    this chord is a cool one because it has a G# and G at the same time so it makes it major/minor and if you will be improvising over it you can play minor and major pentatonic!

    F7#9 (When you are playing this chord make sure that your sixth string is muted)
