Announcement: Rhythm Guitar Lesson in the Style of Green Day is Now Available

Written By marsono on Friday, November 15, 2013 | 8:47 AM

Guitar Control, the leader in web-based guitar instruction and comprehensive DVD-based courses, announces the release of a new YouTube video from the renowned session guitarist and teacher: John MacLennan. He teaches how to play power chords in the style
of the popular rock band, Green Day.

Jon MacLennan instructs students, step by step, in the finer points of playing power chords; specifically a chord progression often used by the band. The chord tabs are provided in the description of the video to make it easier for students to follow along.

In a short video Jon is able to not only show the proper technique in holding the correct chord shapes, but also teach a strumming pattern that is very helpful for beginners.

MacLennan explains the concept behind the wide-interval power chords used on "Holiday" (in this case, the root notes and their relative thirds at the second octave), shows in detail how to finger the chords (which strings to play, which strings to mute), and demonstrates how to attack the strings to bring out the power behind the power-chord voicing.

Jon is a gifted teacher, as well as a consummate player, his friendly personality, easy-going manner, smooth conversational style, and professional approach, results in a very rewarding learning experience. He explains; he does not patronize. So the lesson is helpful to any level of guitarist, from abject beginners to the highly accomplished -- anyone wishing to unlock the techniques of power chords and rhythm guitar playing.

Guitar Control is a consortium of professional guitarists dedicated to providing the highest quality musical instruction. Producing both web-streamed lessons and comprehensive DVD-based courses, Guitar Control offers instruction for every style of playing and for all musical genres.
