  • What’s The Problem?

    Several instruments playing to create the rhythm.
    May not be a guitar rhythm that’s dominate

  • Solution

    Learn to play a library of strum patterns
    Listen for the groove
    Experiment with different patterns

  • Often the rhythm of a song is created by a combination of the drums, bass and rhythm instrument like guitar. To come up with a rhythm that works on acoustic guitar you’ll need to use a rhythm pattern that best gives the feel of the song. This often means simplifying the basic groove.

  • Listen to the entire rhythm of the song (bass, drums and guitar) and coming up with a basic pattern that creates the same groove on acoustic guitar.
