  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 58

    From now on I start a new series called Basic Rock Guitar that is made specially for beginners just because a lot of people asked for it.
    From time to time I'll will publish a new lesson of this series where you'll find some useful informations, riffs, rhythms and simple solo techniques so that you can immediately start to rock your guitar! :-D

    So let's start with 8th rhythms!
    I used several techniques here like muted bass notes and power chords on the A part, chord strumming on the B Part and an unisono bass & guitar riff on the C Part. All based on 8th rhythms.

    Have fun!
