  • Hi Guys,

    Welcome to my lesson No. 43

    Let's take a look at a cool Soul Rhythm Guitar.

    I chose the song structure ABC

    Special in soul music you find a lot of cool rhythm guitars that are perfect to practise precise rhythm and groove.
    In my little Soul song you'll notice that the guitar rhythm is really close to the other instruments like Bass, drums & piano and perfectly match together. A good example of groovy but effective playing.
