Watch the Western Swing in G online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 8: Advanced Rhythm Principles

Western Swing in G - Breakdown is a video guitar lesson presented by Johnny Hiland and is sourced from Ten Gallon Guitar: Rhythm.

Western wing rhythm isn't the easiest thing to play, with a lot of jazz chord knowledge being necessary to really explore the style. If you're playing in a band with someone who knows their jazz chords well, it's your job to play at a different location on the guitar to separate yourself from him. Try changing up your strumming as well, playing softer with more space (our "chunk" rhythm) to complement the other guitar part (and so it doesn't sound muddy).
