Next level guitar-playing can mean different things to different players. Generally speaking however, musicians tend to fit into one of three categories: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. A beginner, for example, may have learned most of the more common open chords and some basic strum patterns. The next level, in this case, could be learning more challenging (and often daunting) bar chords. Or perhaps more complicated strums.
