Gold Rush > Rhythm Guitar and a Classic Tony Rice Tag

We're re-issuing one of Chris's most popular lessons with new re-mastered video and updated loop points. From Chris: 

While grooving well is absolutely the most important (and most satisfying!) part of playing rhythm guitar, it can also be fun to inject little syncopations and colors. This week we're going to take a look at a couple of rhythm guitar accents that work well behind fiddle tunes (or any forword-driving song for that matter). And to close out our studies of Gold Rush I'll show you a classic Tony Rice tag to bring it all home.
