Here’s Matt Isaac’s third video exploring ways of creating electric guitar parts in worship.

Rhythmic division for electric guitar in worship

Key points covered in this video:

  • How rhythmically dense do you want the part to be? Sometimes one chord per bar is enough!
  • Add or reduce the feeling of pace through how you subdivide
  • Mirror or contrast the pace or content of the song, or of other instrumental parts
  • Increasing rhythmic density to build sections
  • Interesting contrasts eg. quicker rhythms over half time groove
