Tapping your foot and playing guitar can be very challenging to do but is an essential skill if you are to play in time.

Despite what you may think, if you have trouble playing guitar and tapping your foot, it is not a timing problem as much as it is a coordination problem.


In this lesson, I’ll take you through 3 levels to get to the point of being able to tap your foot on the beat in time while playing anything on guitar.

Level 1:

Level 2:
