So ive been playing bass for about a year and i have decided i want to start playing rytyhm guitar. What are some important things to learn? (and i mean rythym that isnt JUST chords. for example stuff like guns n roses and the cult and aerosmith)
Learn to keep time...
Freedom isn't free...

It costs like ten dollars a gram
If you are going to play rhythm, then you need to be able to play a rhythm. Work on time signatures, chords, position shifts, single-note riffs and pedal tones. That will keep you busy for a while.
