I can't seem to get the rhythm going with my right hand. I'm simply trying to do the basic one chord riff in "Another brick in the wall" and my right hand just wont let me :(

Seems to me that I can't quite get the flexibility (my hand's too stiff when i play?) to do it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Marc

Play along to the music. Even if you can't do it yet, just keep trying and eventually something will click,and you will have control of that right hand.

Maybe resting your hand on the stop bar of your guitar will help you relax it.

The only other thing I can advise is keep practicing.

One of the absolue KEYS to rhythmn and timing is to RELAX. Make a conscience effort to relax your right hand from the shoulder all the way to your finger tips. Alot of times when you're trying to learn something new you can become very tense - I believe this inhibits your muscles ability to properly react the way your intend. So, every few moments, stop and hang your arm by your side and "shake it out", take a breath and remember to relax. Try it and I bet you'll see and improvement.

If you practice some Chromatic scales with a metronome you will quite quickly syncronize your right picking hand to the fingers on your left hand.

It's the boring foundation work that all crappy players skipped. :) Well, boring if you do it for several hours a day...but if you want to see fast improvement...

Oh yeah, if you do a Google search, you will find several free metronomes on the Web.
