    I was really struggling getting the Funky Blues rhythm and counting down. I stood up to practice more and the reflection of my hand in the mirror caught my eye, so I started counting while watching my hand. After that the rhythm started really coming along. I’ve always known I’m a very visual learner so for any other visual people out there that may be a tip to help out when it comes to this rhythm.

    I'll have to try this. I can play the second part of this lesson full speed by cheating, right hand strums at half speed. Strumming full speed and I still get kinda crazy. This is the one part of the rythmn portion I haven't mastered. I use the term mastered to mean up to my garage rock standards. Very loosely.

    Sounds like a idea--can't hurt nothing the way I play.
