Having a better understanding of the rhythm, time, and feel aspects of your rhythm playing is essential to bettering your overall musicality. These concepts and ideas transcend into all styles of music, and while today we examined their context in rock, it is important to find these ideas in other styles as well. Putting it all together, let's examine two chord progressions and apply the feels we discussed in this chapter.

1. Play the following progression in 4/4, with the metronome at 100 bpm. Play the example 3 times, applying each of the feels we described in this chapter (Straight, Shuffle, and Swing.)

2. Play the following progression in 3/4, with the metronome at 80 bpm. Play the example 3 times, applying each of the feels we described in this chapter (Straight, Shuffle, and Swing.)

This concludes our final lesson on Chords and Rhythm in Rock Guitar Level 2. Take the time to review all 5 chapters we have looked at, and try to apply all of these concepts to further your develop your understanding of rock guitar. Each concept just scratches the surface of possibilities with rock guitar rhythm playing, all the while aiding you in developing your own creative ideas on your instrument. Take a look back at the music that inspires you, and see if you can find some examples of what we have covered in all of our examples of Rock Guitar Level 2: Chords and Rhythm.
