Howdy folks! I'm Johnny Hiland and welcome to Ten Gallon Guitar: Rhythm Edition. 90% of the time, students who come to me want my chickin pickin' licks, but here we'll focus on what I feel is most essential to creating a full song and not just a solo: playing rhythm.
I've organized this course into two sections, diving into how I play rhythm in the first section. We'll look at how to walk the bassline and use it in your rhythm playing, taking it further into bluegrass guitar, modern country, blues, rock, and a whole lot more.
In the second section, we'll have a whole lot of fun by looking at these techniques in performance studies. I'll perform each tune for you and break it down step by step, including a jam track for you to play along with and all the standard tab and notation. Alright folks, it's time to put on your cowboy hat, throw on your boots, grab your guitar, and have some fun!
