A propulsive backbeat syncopation is the engine of rock and roll rhythm guitar. In the first tutorial of this series we learned the basics of syncopated rock rhythm guitar playing patterns using only open major chords. This time we'll apply the technique of alternating palm muted bass notes and punchy chords on higher strings using minor chords.

If you missed it, you might want to check out the first tutorial in this series before working through this one.
