Posted: July 2nd, 2013 by Ashley Saunders
95% of the time you will be playing rhythm guitar, whether it’s chords or a single note idea. To be easy to play with and trust me it matters, you need good solid rhythm skills. Fact!
You need to learn to play in time, in tune and do it with conviction. So, it’s time to grab a metronome and a guitar. Set the metronome on the slowest setting [usually 40BPM] and try to play something really simple. Keep doing this until you can hold a rhythm for 5 minutes without stopping or making a mistake. This is a real challenge, but if you want to be gigging a lot you’ll need to be able to play solid rhythm guitar.
