Cory Wong has propelled a mastery of rhythm playing to a platform that has made everyone in the guitar world stand up and listen. How often do we come across a virtuoso player who would prefer a 24 bar rhythm groove on a single chord, to a face-melting solo 24 bar solo!

You'll learn the ability to choose which beat you accent to influence the groove of the track, the chords you need to play to get the Cory sound!
