Intermediate Guitar Rhythm Lesson

Rock House Blog offers a rhythm lesson that should interest beginners. Although intended for intermediate players, you'll be able to use it if you know a few major and minor chords in open positions.

The first exercises show you how to create some reggae rhythms by playing on the off-beat. If you play open chords you should try to mute the strings with your palm on the beats, where you don't strum.

Following the reggae grooves is an example using a country feel. This is a good opportunity to start some alternating bass playing with your familiar open chord positions.

The later examples cover blues and rock styles, you'll need some bar chords for these, though.

Hop over to the Rock House Blog and enjoy these rhythm exercises this weekend.
