In this lesson we'll kick the tempo up even further, and look at a whole different approach to playing rhythm guitar over the progression from the previous lesson.

So let's take the progression from the previous tutorial and speed it up even more. You could get away with playing the Tic Toc pattern, but there's a risk of it all sounding rushed and stressed. That's when it can sometimes be cool to go the other way of what everybody else in the band is doing. In this case that would come down to playing some longer held out chords.
