hi guys i’m just learning rhythm guitar, and i was wondering if anyone could suggest any chord change exercices that i could follow, i’ve got the “boom chick” but i’m a little slow with my chords.

It’s been years, and no direct lessons that I can give you to link to but I can remember working on chord changes and chords themselves 27 years ago when I started and 2 things that really helped me were:
IF your fingers get sore and you can’t play then simply stare at the guitar and visualize where each finger is supposed to go to make a chord…this will help get it in your head…you should be able to look at the guitar and visually see your chords without fretting them. Guitar will really turn more so into a “visual” practice when you get more into scales and such.
On changing: Since you are learning I am probably pretty sure you are learning your “open chords” that take place on within the 1st 3 frets. Well in your rhythm/timing/making efficient chord changes and keeping the boom chick going to to take advantage of the “open strings” in your change…for instance, make an “open G chord”…notice that your 2nd, 3rd, and 4th strings are “open” and do not need your fingers on them to make a G chord…well that is because that as open strings they are G,B,and D notes…that in itself is a G chord (3rd inversion right?)…those notes make up a G major Triad/Chord…well realize that when changing chords to hit those grouping of strings and no others and it gives you time to move your hands…I mean you can literally not even fret any notes on the guitar and strum these 3 open strings and you are strumming a G chord…so if you can’t keep it in time and change quick enough then realize that you can use open strings around the chord. Bluegrass is one form of music that loves use open strings/groupings of strings in both the rhythm and lead of the songs.
I may have confused you but I hope I have helped
