GuitarStorm Ep 1 - Rhythm Guitar 1

Written by: Forged Soul
Published: 05.06.2011

This is the first of a series of mini guitar lessons. Thanks to everyone who watched. I hope you got something out of it, even if it was just laughing at my funny face. I always wanted to do something to give back to the community to which I've been a part of these last eight years. It is my goal, not so much to teach the basics or to teach someone to play guitar from scratch, but to give some of the cool little tips and tricks I've picked up along the way. Stuff that either I wish I knew back when I was learning or stuff that when I learned I thought, "man, I never would have thought of that." If you are interested in pursuing more of the techniques and theories more in depth, I do offer online Skype guitar lessons. Feel free to contact me about them.

I am by no means the end all, be all, of guitar knowledge. I'm just someone who loves music, loves to play and trade new and cool ideas. The goal is to grow and be a better musician and these communities are amazing bastions of support and knowledge that it would be criminal not to share. As of now, I have about ten lessons queued up, and will post about once a week. When those are over, I'm hoping to continue with new ideas and further some of the ones already put forward. In the meantime, I will be watching the Musicians Corner forum more and will try to answer more questions, clarifications, and fix any mistakes. There might a few. This first video was made a while ago with an old camera. All following videos are of much higher quality. Enjoy.

This is fantastic. This is one aspect of the music that metalstorm hasn't really covered yet, it's good to see we're starting. Keep 'em coming.

As a guitar player, I think these type of articles are very helpful.

Thumbs up!

About a week ago, I found out I focused too much on the lead playing for quite some time and my rythm quite sucks even on the low level of guitar skill that I'm on . So.. thanks a lot for this! You couldn't have possibly posted it at better time. Looking forward for more in the future.

I've got the opposite problem: I focus too much on rhythm. It's all Iced Earth's fault.

I like the lesson, but to really unleash the inner funk, I would've liked you to bust out the wah pedal at the end.

Pretty cool. It reminds me of the days when I just started learning to play guitar. I did the same exercise with the scratches.
