Here are 3 lessons for playing both rhythm & licks, using just your guitar. There is no backing track needed! Sure, you can use one if you want, but it’s better to just use a metronome. The purpose with these lessons is to learn how to combine rhythm playing with licks, and to sound like you know what you are doing. The benefits with these lessons are that you will improve your timing, your chord and fretboard knowledge, your strumming technique, your vocabulary of licks. In short, this helps in pretty much every way! A great way to sound like a one-man band, and a great way to practice licks, timing and rhythm together. This will of course translate over to “regular lead playing” as well.
