Watch the Straight 8th Rhythm Guitar online guitar lesson by Brad Carlton from Groove Builder

Now we start laying a guitar part over each jam track. The important thing is to listen to what the bass and drums have already established and then complement without overriding what has already been played. You'll see me reacting to the music as I choose what to play.

Remember the most important skill a musician develops is using their ears. Don't be in such a rush to play. Listen to the track a few times before you even pick up your guitar.
