I would suggest buying the lessons from this guy. You can buy all his lessons for about 45-50 bucks and they are worth every penny. He covers primarily, rock, blues, country, and blue grass guitar. Covers bass, piano, lap steel, banjo and some others also - if you are so inclined.http://www.youtube.com/user/groovydjs
Damm, I'm going to pick this up for myself, thanks for the link.
I may get flamed for this one but I love how he hates TAB!
Have no idea what experience level you are - so take this suggestion with a grain of salt. If you buy his lessons and are a relative beginner or intermediate, I would suggest priortizing these video lessons first:
Nashville number system video. Has Nashville in the title, but it is really general music theory for the 8 tone, Whole Note, "do ray me" scale. Also covers figuring out the key of songs.
Music Theory for the guitar.
Then, the Basics videos: Blues, country, and rock.
The only other thing I will suggest - even if you really like one style or not like a style - country, blues, rock - whatever - you should still watch his video for the style. A lot of his specific videos for country, rock, or blues are general techniques that will move across styles. Throw distortion on double stops and country bends and you have rock or metal, for example. Finger picking country acoustic or blue grass - can translate to rock or blues technique on electric.
The funk rhythm video is also a great one for practicing rhythm techniques.
Anyway, well worth the money.
As to the comment on rhythm guitar - every guitarist should strive to be a rhythm player. Where would Steve Cropper be without being able to stay with the rhythm section AND play lead fills?
