Watch the Banjo Roll: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Joe Dalton from Big Twang

This is a typical bluegrass style rhythm guitar part. With the presence of a strong bass player, you may want to omit the bass notes that are played on beats one and three. Many rhythm guitar parts are variations of this example.
