Watch the Building the Rhythm Track online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Rhythm Guitar Greatest Hits Vol. 1

Building the rhythm track. Notice how the right hand rhythm pattern changes up. The 2-3, 2-2-3- 2-2 pattern can also be turned around and played 2-2-3-2-2, 2-3.

Pay attention to the Thumb!! Keep the bass steady and don’t anticipate the third beat.

Also make sure to pay attention to the Left hand pulsation - how we press and release the strings in time to create short and long sustain to the chords...this is essential to getting the part to groove!
