This week on Guitar Insider I respond to a request from Amir for some tips on counting and understanding the rhythm behind parts you learn. Most of us ignore this element for a while before we realize how important it is. This usually happens when we try to play by ourselves or with someone else and we realize that we’ve been relying on someone else’s rhythm rather than developing our own. Working on this can feel like moving backwards, but instead try to think of it like strengthening your musical foundation! You don’t have to pause everything else you're learning, but no matter where you are on your guitar journey you should start right now to pay attention to your counting and foot tapping. Developing a powerful rhythmic drive is one of the best things you can do for your playing!
