Watch the Akbar: Rhythm 1 online guitar lesson by Trey Alexander from Quantum Rock

This is another Sonic Lux song. Here I use the chord changes while adding the bass notes to create movement. This is a really nice way to comp while someone else is soloing. Just drop the pick and get a real nice fleshy sound! This is a lot of fun and will cause us to get better with these finger-style riffs! Finger-style guitar seems to have its scary and intimidating ways but I found out through years of watching fabulous guitarists play that no two people play it the same way. Just do it your way and start slow and steady. That way you don’t start any painful habits. I think a lot of wrist and arm pain is due to us wanting to advance too quickly. Just practice these riffs slow and steady and relax your arm as much as possible.
