Watch the Rhythm online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Rock Guitar For Beginners
This is a harder rock song. In this jam we will work on using power chords and then we will learn how to play small 2 note chords that will sound incredible with very little effort. Guitarists such as Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, and Joe Satriani have used these chords to come up with some of the most elite rhythms. In this example we will also walk the power chord/ 5 chords down chromatically. This will help us start to see how useful the chromatic scale can be even in our rhythm playing! Play along with the jam tracks and be sure to concentrate on duplicating the rhythms before expanding on them!
