Watch the 19 Rhythm Guitar Techniques online guitar lesson by Vicki Genfan from Acoustic Rhythm Survival GuideOne of the initial motivations for creating this course came from watching the musical-comedy group, Axis of Awesome perform their 4 Chord Song routine it ended up going viral on YouTube. They showed us that hundreds, if not thousands of hit songs use the very same chord progression In this case it was I-V-VIm-IVIf thats the case, then what distinguishes one song from the nextWhat can we learn from thisCertainly each song has its own melody and lyrics... but what are the other elements that give a song its unique ID Acoustic Rhythm Guitar Survival Guide answers these questions and more Youll discover that you only have to know a handful of chord progressions in order to play andor write thousands of songsDrawing from the 19 tools Ive presented here, some which are my own special creations, and many which have been used by hit-makers across all styles of music, youll have enough fuel to ignite your creative sparks into a raging fire.To get started, were going to use that same progression that Axis of Awesome used - the I-V-VIm-IV.For those of you new to chord vocabulary, the roman numerals refer to the number of the root of each chord, based in a particular key.For instance, in the key of G, the I chord is a G Major chord. The V chord is D Major, as D is the 5th note in the G scale. The VIm refers to the chord starting on E or the 6th note of the G scale. The lower case m lets us know this is a minor chord. Finally, the IV refers to the C or 4th note in the G scale.This is a Major chord. If youre new to music theory and want to learn more, its worth finding a good teacher or check out the TrueFireTV curriculum to find the course thats right for your level.
