Over the years we have received many requests from acoustic guitarists who have wanted to know more about building rhythmic elements into their accompaniment and lead playing. Bob Brozman has now made a fascinating lesson that will help you to look at your guitar in a whole new way. His video will benefit acoustic guitarists of any style and genre.

Bob explores many aspects of rhythm guitar, and investigates the elements of meter, and what makes a good "groove." He helps you develop your coordination through a variety of drills, leading you in hand- and foot-tapping exercises so that accents, swing rhythm, polyrhythms, triplets in blues playing and other meters become second nature. As Bob says: "We can all stand to have a better sense of rhythm, and I want to smooth the pathway to music between your brain and your muscles."

Moving the exercises to the guitar, Bob shows how to incorporate these techniques into songs using strumming patterns, string slapping, fret tapping, hammering, damping, and other devices that will put emphasis and movement into your music. Fingerstyle players will be especially intrigued by the ways that Bob works these subtleties into his blues and ragtime picking. Among other things, you'll learn the "false waltz" (123-123-12) and how to incorporate blues, Caribbean, New Orleans, calypso and other rhythms into your picking and strumming style.

The ability to change and improve your instrumental arrangements through rhythmic variations is at the heart of this lesson. This is aptly demonstrated by the fact that Bob has improvised all of the music on this tape, proving the power and spontaneity of good rhythmic guitar playing.
