20 Melodic Etudes For Rhythm Guitar

20 Melodic Etudes For Rhythm Guitar

One of the most vital core elements of guitar is Rhythm Guitar playing. So often, we prioritize Soloing over Accompaniment, or Lead Guitar over Rhythm Guitar. The truth is that both worlds are directly interrelated, and both rely on a combination of melodic, linear and chordal vocabulary.

In this new online improvisational masterclass, we're going to be focusing on 20 Etudes exploring a contemporary style of rhythm guitar playing that I like to call Melodic Rhythm Guitar.

This modern style draws heavily from a classic Chord-Melody approach, and can be heard throughout Contemporary Jazz, R&B and Soul-influenced music.
