hey guys,
i'm trying to write a two piece acoustic instrumental song and i cant seem to create a good rhythm part... i would like to do something more than just strum chords but not get too fancy, any advice???
You could throw in a few simple bass or treble run bars you make up and like between cord bars, especially in the chorus if you have one[?]

You can try adding some extra notes to normal chords to expand them. Also having 'sustained notes' in chord progressions can help you ie:


Or maybe having open strings ring on all chords ie:


or a low open string that kinda sounds as a substitute root note:


These things always work really nice in acoustic guitar. Hope this will help u a bit
