It really doesn’t matter what type of music you’re playing on the guitar; most of of the time, you’ll be playing rhythm! And, if you’re playing any American-born styles, like country, blues, pop, funk, or rock, you’ll likely be playing rhythm on a very simple chord progression. So, you’ll need to make sure your rhythm vocabulary is stocked well. Otherwise, your playing might just get, well, plain boring!
