Is there a series of lessons on rhythm guitar, I don't really care what genre, just need to work on some timing issues. I see a bunch of individual rhythm lessons, but not series. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Any song or tutorial that has a chord progression should work for this goal. You just need to pick a song or tutorial that has chords you already know. So it does depend on your skill level & desired style of music.

You could also use a metronome or some generic backing tracks. Those are the most underused tools that can really help develop an internal clock.

Having said all that, Anders does a great job of really detailing the process of acquiring solid rhythm in these rock course tutorials.

Thanks for this. You're always coming through and helping others acheive their music goals.

I actually found your rock guitar rhythm series as well and these patterns are breathing some new life into old chords.
