Learn 5 blues guitar rhythms that have a heavy guitar-driven sound, and a swingin’ beat.
So Excited, Cold Shot and Change It from SRV, Born With A Broken Heart, Somehow, Somewhere, Someway by KWS… these songs all have a common thread. They have a heavy, guitar-driven rhythm with a swing beat.
That heavy swing rhythm feel is what you’ll learn in this course. I’ve created 5 rhythms in that style, each with a different sound. You’ll also learn some muting techniques necessary to play them cleanly.
Here what's included when you buy this course, or watch it online.

The first lesson is free to watch. Rhythm 1 is fairly simple, but unless you've already developed great muting and raking technique, you'll probably be challenged quite a bit.
Rhythm 2 has a similar sound as Rhythm 1, but using a series of sliding chords to get a different feel.
Rhythm 3 uses a combination of chords and single note walkups to tie together all 3 chords of the progression.
Rhythm 4 has a minor sound, reminiscent of Born With A Broken Heart by KWS.
Rhythm 5 is another minor rhythm, and is probably the most difficult in this course because of some tricky sliding chords.
