Watch the Rough Shape: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 1

In this first approach to forging a rhythm part to this type of groove and progression, I simply sit on the two chords of the progression, G7 and D7, the one or tonic and the V (five) chord, respectively. The G7 exemplifies the verse, for which I strive to drive the beat along, and the D7 exemplifies the chorus, for which I allow the notes to sustain in order to provide contrast with the verse rhythm approach.
