Next Steps For Rhythm Guitar – Rhythm Guitar Lesson #12

Hey it’s Nate Savage here and you made
it! Welcome to the 12th and final lesson of the Rhythm Guitar Quick-Start Series. We’ve
covered a lot of stuff that’s going to be super valuable throughout your career as a
rhythm guitarist. You may feel a little overwhelmed but don’t
worry. We’ve covered a lot of stuff in a short amount of time. And you know, don’t feel like you have to absorb it all the first time through. Feel free to come back here and go through
this series a second or even a third time. You’ll be surprised at how much you pick
up again. If you’re ready to move on, you may be thinking
to yourself “Well, what do I do next? What’s the next step that I need to take?” As far
as rhythm guitar is concerned, there are a lot of avenues that you could pursue. The
important thing is that you set some realistic and attainable goals and for someone with
your new rhythm guitar skills that you’ve learned here, one of the ways you can do that
is to really choose one specific type of music to focus on.
I’d also recommend that you spend some time studying theory as far as how far keys work
and where chords come from. That’s important too. And just like I said at the beginning of
this series, I always think it’s really important that you apply everything that you’re
working on the guitar to real music. That way, you can see how it’s supposed to help
your playing. There are lots of books, DVDs, YouTube lessons,
the Internet, but sometimes it’s hard to piece that stuff together for your specific
goals. If you want to fast track your progress on the guitar, you should check out the Guitar
System. It’s my comprehensive step-by-step video training course for guitar that’s
not only going to help you with rhythm guitar and all the styles that’s contained there
but it’s going to help you reach your full potential in a lot of other areas in guitar.
And everything is applied to real music too, through dozens of jam tracks, loops and play-along.
If you want to find out more about it, go to
Thanks for going through this series with me. I really hope it helped you over some
hurdles and open some doors for your playing. I’ll see you around.

  2. Nate, Its coming along just fine. Now that I have "re-freshed" my memory with your videos, I played a few jam nights already and now my playing is "the way it should be", and it sounds great. You were also right about rhythm guitar helping your lead guitar. Now when I take a lead, I am able to take it all over the neck because I am getting used to pattern, progressions, ec ec. Thank you once again. I will be keeping in touch.

  3. Thanks nate I don't remember every thing but I practice alot and I'm learning I'm going to try the lead gitar series that's what I've been intrested in that thank you!

  4. Hello, Nate Savage. Thank you for your instruction on rhythm guitar. I'm a bass player. Been playing for 40 years. But I never had lessons. So I can't read music. And I'm just beginning to learn notes (outside the first position) on my bass. Was working on a piece of music in GarageBand yesterday and figured I'd try to add some rhythm guitar. Had NO FREAKIN' CLUE how or where to start. So I came to YouTube and found your lessons. Can hardly wait to sit with this guitar (my first) and start learning. You're going to prove to be a tremendous blessing to me. Thank you again.
