  • Hello everybody,

    In this lesson, we will cover rhythm work in the style of Keith Richards, guitar player of the Rolling Stones.

    The lesson is fairly easy one, as we use mostly powerchords, major chords and suspending them for the distinctive "Stones" sound. It should help you with your rhythm work, and enable you to understand in what way you can combine these chords together to form rhythmic patterns on your own.

    As far as theory goes, we will concentrate on pauses between the notes, and suspended 4th chords in this lesson.

    For this lesson I used Telecasted guitar on the bridge pickup into Amplitube 3, emulating Mesa Mark III combo.

    Let's begin! :)
