Math Rock Beginners Lesson: Chords, Rhythm, Timing

Hello, Steve here. I made this tutorial video for those who are interested in learning how to start writing and playing math rock for guitar. The lesson is separated into three segments, first we’ll learn some mathy style chords, secondly we’ll take these chords and use them to practice some mathy style rhythm exercises, and lastly, we’ll touch upon odd time and compound time signatures. In each section you’ll learn some music theory too, great stuff!
