Watch the Pier of the Sea: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Andy Aledort from Jam Night Vol. 2
For the majority of the following rhyhm guitar examples, the first example will represent a very basic, straight forward approach akin to what the primary rhythm guitar player in a band would play. This way, this rhythm part can be used effectively as a "bed" track to the secondary rhythm part that could, for example, be played simultaneously by a second rhythm guitarist. I took this approach because a great many of us play in two-guitar bands, and, to me, this is the most useful way to look at the integration of complementary rhythm guitar parts. The verse chord progression is G-B-C-A, and the chorus chord progression is G-Em (2x)-G-A-G-E.
