How do you get good at guitar quickly? How about without getting bored, or even worse, being totally confused? Do you want to know how to shred?

Luckily, our weekly column: Shred Lessons by Cannon McDonald, breaks down the barriers!

Today’s lesson is focused on time signatures, and much like the last one, I’m amazed at how he can turn something so basic into fun and invaluable information.

This video includes awesome riffs, solo lines, tabs on screen: all of which is thoroughly explained. In under 10 minutes!

Understanding time signatures is very essential not only to playing other people’s music, but also making your own music more interesting and properly locking in with the rhythm section. Even if you have great feel, you’ll be able to sound even more organic and in control one you understand time signatures inside and out.

Check back every Friday for more from Cannon!

Thanks for watching! Besides video content, we publish lots of great articles too!
