Rhythm is an essential part of playing guitar. Without it, songs can sound flat and dull to yourself and listeners. Anyone can lose interest in basic strums without a sense of groove or feel.

It’s also one of the most challenging skills for guitarists to learn. That’s why we created an easy-to-follow course you can complete in under two hours – to get you excited and confident in playing rhythm on the guitar.
