Cheers to Amir Razmara for the good question at last evening's v-chat session!

What is syncopation?

In music, syncopation includes a variety of rhythms which are in some way unexpected in that they deviate from the strict succession of regularly spaced strong and weak but also powerful beats in a meter (pulse). These include a stress on a normally unstressed beat or a rest where one would normally be stressed. "If a part of the measure that is usually unstressed is accented, the rhythm is considered to be syncopated."

I like this version better, Coz. wink.gif

More simply, syncopation is a general term for a disturbance or interruption of the regular flow of rhythm; a placement of rhythmic stresses or accents where they wouldn't normally occur.

Hi guys

Alexi Laiho of "Children of Bodom" has done some lessons on syncopation in his "In your Face Guitar" advanced techniques & concepts DVD, In which he defines syncopation as displacement of time and uneven rhythm timing. It seems to me that's whats happening in the riff below. I also included a tab here, check it out and let us know what you think of their definition, or any other thoughts.
