I've come to realize that I am not very good at guitar. I love playing guitar and I'd like to get better. I've played bass for years and consider myself pretty good. I have a good understanding of music theory that I need for bass playing. ( I know circle of 5th's, chord shapes, modes and scales)
However when I play on acoustic guitar with friends I can't seem to bring it all together. I would consider myself a capable camp fire guitar player. I can strum through most dead and dylan songs with ease and sing along, but when I hear other people in coffee shops play these same songs , the guitar playing sounds so much better than my strumming. They add fills and even the chords they play sound more full. I needs some tips. practice tips, tips on filling by yourself on acoustic guitar, strumming patterns, or anything. I can tell from the video's I've seen on this site you guys are really good rhythm guitar players. Any advice would help thanks.
