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)
Uh, it depends on what genre you play.
Learn to keep time...
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.
