Watch the The Beach: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Quantum Rock
This is one of our original songs that my bass player and I wrote while we were at the beach. In this example we are going to start with a couple rounds of the chords. We will utilize some 9 chords and some sus chords. These are nice and bring an airy feeling to the piece. We will also brush over some 6ths and combine them with this rhythm. 6ths are one of my favorite sounds on the guitar and they seem to find their way into a lot of my original music. At the end of the piece I use the delay to get a slap back effect on the chords. Any delay will work. I was using a T-Rex Replica in this example! After that I use some nice open strings for the F chord.
