Hey folks, normally I would put out a very thorough 45 min – 1 hour lesson (as I do every Friday), but due to the launch of the new ActiveMelody website, I was just too swamped to get the lesson complete in time. However, I didn’t want to leave you with nothing at all! So I put together a really simple little video that shows you how to play a fun little blues rhythm that can easily be transposed to any key. There are no open strings in this one!
I get emails from people all of the time asking for ideas on how to improve their rhythm playing. It’s very easy to get into a rut when playing rhythm (maybe even easier than when playing lead). So this video serves as another concept that you may or may not be familiar with. It’s very similar to the melody line in Muddy Water’s, “I’m Ready”. I should also mention that this works great on acoustic or electric guitar.
