In this video lesson, courtesy of Elixir Strings, guitarist Allan Salmon teaches a funky lick and demonstrates ways to improve your rhythm playing. You can watch the lesson above.
One thing that's key to good rhythm playing is having fresh strings. With Elixir Optiweb strings, you get all the performance of a natural string — that crisp tone, natural feel and playable grip you know and love — without sacrificing the long-lasting tone life that the company is known for.
"Elixir Strings are now essential for me," Salmon says. "They sound fresh gig after gig and feel new for such a long time. I couldn't use anything else."
