Hey, I need to build up my rhythm playing, so can anyone suggest some good songs with good chord progressions and strumming, with a range of difficulty? Thanks.

learn any Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan or Beatles song. All of them focus heavily on rhythm.

Try Under The Bridge by The Chili Peppers, its pretty good for learning barre chords and stuff, and kinda combining lead and rhythm

I agree with The Misfits and Aiden. AFI too- playing AFI really helped expand my chord vocabulary.

Learning AFI riffs really helped me a lot too. Jade Puget is a genius. (Unless you're talking about their old guitarist, but he was pretty awesome too)

Good progressions as in easy, or good progressions as in use a lot of chords?
If your looking for something like 3 chord songs try Rain-The Beatles.


Some Bob Marley also has intresting strumming patterns and progressions.

He probably meant progressions that sound good, and most likely on the hard side.

Ever hear a song and you're like "Hey that's an awesome chord progression!", and then you hear a song and you're like "what a horrible chord progression..."
