It's ALL About Rhythm

The Lessons on Guitar Quick Tips

Got rhythm? Who could ask you for anything more?

We all spend more time thinking about notes than we should about rhythm... but it's rhythm that is the centre of our world, not the notes.

Think about it, rhythm has been with our species for thousands of years, our system of harmony only a few hundred... so rhythm is in our species.

A fine example is that of the great blues masters that do whole solos with just a few notes... the BB Blues Box or whatever. You can learn those 4 notes in 10 seconds but a blues master it will not make you! What those guys have is a supreme command of time, they use it to push and pull our emotions.

In my experience, paying attention to rhythm helps it greatly, so this video is to bump up your awareness of it in the hope you will respect it and pay it your dues!
