Watch the Rhythm Concepts online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Acoustic Guitar 4: Rhythm Principles

In this section, Laurence Juber presents the 16 key concepts and techniques that comprise his rhythm method. Laurence will guide you through a series of lessons and demonstrations that cover rhythm figures and patterns, harmony, chord selection, chord voicings, inversions, right and left hand techniques, muting, choking, various kinds of articulation and then most importantly, how to pull it all together so your groove sits in a solid pocket with the band.

TIP! Being a good rhythm guitarist starts with having a good sense of timing and being able to play in the pocket. But once you have a good handle on that, then you need to expand your options - both rhythmically and harmonically.

A great way to do this is by listening to other players who are great rhythm guitarists. Hear how they apply different variations and make note of what their choices are.

It helps to break your rhythm practice into those two areas - work on rhythm variations and different feels and grooves. Then work on using other harmonic options, different chord inversions and voicings. If you systematically experiment with testing out other options you will naturally gravitate towards the ones that are YOUR style, and you can further develop those, and then you will become that hip rhythm player that other people listen to!
