”When thinking about rhythm guitar, I always tell guitar players to listen to – and craft a conversation – between the bass player, the drummer, and yourself. That’s the art of crafting a ‘musical dialog’ – and that’s what will spark a ‘renaissance’ in your own rhythm guitar playing.
We’ll practice and play over a collection of fifteen different grooves, across a wide variety of popular styles. We’ll start by analyzing what the bass player and drummer are doing, and then we’ll craft our rhythm parts to make the rhythm section shine.
I’ll share my go-to rhythm guitar strategies, pass on my favorite chord voicings, and show you how to ‘serve the song’ and establish a tight ‘musical dialogue” to support the vocalist and lead instruments.”
Kenny’s series of video lessons spans the spectrum of genres and grooves: Driving Rock Groove, Driving Rock Chorus, Swampy Hypnotic, Speedy Mambo, Hooks & Fills, Second Line Kitty, Lonestar Double, Adding Color in Rock Settings, Dead Man’s Hand, Light R&B Funky, Light R&B Funky, Deep Funk, Tower Throwback, Garage Angst, Philosophy of the Working Musician, International Sheik, Driving Rocker, Frat Party Ska, and Tools of the Rhythm Guitar Trade.
