Over the course of his 40-year recording and performing career, Robben Ford’s rhythm guitar work has excited the ears of his audience, fired up his musical collaborations with dozens of top artists and simply amazed his fellow guitar players. “Playing rhythm guitar is the greatest joy in my musical life,” says Robben, “I love the subject of rhythm guitar, I love talking about it and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to finally present my rhythm guitar approaches in this Rhythm Revolution video course.”
Robben organized the Rhythm Revolution curriculum in two sections. In the first section, Robben presents brief top-line overviews of the rhythm guitar concepts and techniques that underpin his signature approach and style.
Robben summarizes concepts like single-note rhythms and fills, use of space and air, playing with a second guitar player, the importance of consistency, the art of simplicity, sonic qualities, essential right-hand techniques, chord vocabulary, harmonic approaches, dynamics and best ways to practice rhythm guitar. All of these topics are covered and demonstrated in much greater depth and detail in his Blues Revolution master course.
In the second section, Robben demonstrates all of his signature concepts and techniques across a series of 12 rhythm guitar studies. You’ll first learn the rhythm guitar parts as Robben performs them by studying his video performances, breakdowns, charts and tabs. You’ll then practice the parts by playing along with Robben until you’re ready to perform them yourself over the supplied rhythm tracks.
