The rhythm guitarist who can play the appropriate chord voicing that fits the style and which blends with the musical situation is a rare commodity. The novice is generally only aware of 2 or 3 inversions and most are likely in the same category or "chord family". Stylizing your chords and being able to fit them into different situations is really what Rhythm Guitar Tutor is all about. An added benefit is improved technical prowess of both right and left hands while gaining an appreciation of many other rhythm guitar styles that here-to-fore many have not been exposed to. The ability to play rhythm guitar is not only fun, but also lucrative - guitarists who play rhythm guitar well will never be out of work.
