Thank you. That completes one of your best compositions in EP 222. A lot of excitement about this one. Can’t wait to get started on it.
San Luis Rey says
Very nice rhythm and fills Brian! Before this micro I was fooling around with the chords in first position and the barre chords up where you played them. I think the fills are better up where you played them . Thanks
peter w says
Thanks for the follow up . Slap some lyrics and vocals on that… the melody is implied. I hear a great song…
Denny B. says
The song I’m hearing is The Walk by Mayer Hathorne. Very cool Brian.
Thanks, Brian. I love these rhythm lessons.
Jimmy James says
Love this lesson Brian!
I was expecting them fills to be a lot harder than as they sounded quite technical in the backing track , i did have a go by ear before the lesson was published but lost patience lol should have known it was all off the chord with the pinky and the other side of the A shape . Great stuff quite simple really but very effective . Love the Rhythm part Thanks .
Great rhythm lesson with a few licks added to make it interesting. Thank you.
Aussie Rick says
Thanks Brian for doing this lesson on the rhythm part of EP 222 – it’s much appreciated. Going to get stuck into this straight away.

Great R&B Rhythm lesson
Hi Brian. If you talked about tone settings, I missed it. What pedals and amp effects are you using? Thanks. Love your lessons.
I found this helpful too!
William D says
Another great lesson. Love the hendrixian feel.
Great Lesson! I am totally jealous of that Carter’s Vintage Shirt!
Rev Bob says
Wow! Thanks for the follow up to EP 222, with this rhythm section, what could be more exciting on a Saturday morning than cracking this, a big thank you Brian. 👍🏻😎
thanks for fulfilling my wish 🙂

Thanks for this Brian. Can you offer any advice on barring minor chords cleanly? I really struggle to find a placement for my index finger that will hold down the G string in the Bm7. It always sounds muted whatever I do. Thin bony fingers I guess!!
I’d just say to pay attention to the leverage you’re getting from your thumb on the back of the neck. Play around with the position of your thumb and you should find a place that allows you to make the barre chord easier
I know this is late but have always struggled with that so maybe this will help. What I am doing now is using my flip off finger to hold my pointer finger down. I hope that helps.
Quick, easy and consistent. Becomes automatic with repetition.

Brian, you are looking younger! How do you do that? More years more younger haha
