16th Note Rhythms For Guitar Pt.2

In today's video guitar lesson we will continue our look at 16th note rhythms for the beginning guitarist.

Having a very fluid rhythm technique is absolutely essential for all playing styles so I urge you to spend a lot of time with this type of study. You will notice after a short while that playing rhythm along with virtually any tune your hear will become second nature to you if you can follow the basic procedures that we are covering here in these lessons.

Be sure to play close attention to the looseness of the wrist because at faster tempos it is essential that you use proper wrist technique so you won't find yourself tightening up.

Don't forget to grab the PDF TAB download for this lesson since it lays out all of the picking indications and counting for you.

Take your time with these studies and don't forget, as you practice the rhythms patterns, try to memorize the sound and lock in with the feel of it so you can quit counting and just play what you feel.

Till Next Time!!

    Hi Carl,

    I discovered your blog a few days ago looking for Eric Johnson style practice and the first thing I have to say is that you are doing a fantastic job for all level guitar players. Thanks a lot man.
    I’m an advanced player (I hope so!!) but I’ve been checking the beginner lessons one by one to see if I missed something important in the past and… damn… I did !
    Reviewing the Sixteenth Note Rhythms Pt2 exercises, I realized that I’m totally capable of feeling it and playing it if my foot marks twice per beat (1&,2&,3&,4&) but it gets harder and I eventually fail (!!) when I try to speed up when my foot marks the beat (1,2,3,4) or if I try to count loud at the same time. I feel it is a lack of independence between foot / hands /voice.
    I think it’s important to fix that. How should I practice it ? Where to start?
    If I keep following your site, I’ll definitely subscribe or at least make a donation !!
    I hope to read you soon.
