Hi guys! I have created a new exercise! Now we will play on kick and snare
Still using the same track (Drums only)
The chord I am using is E7#9




http://soundcloud.com/alex-feather-akimov/rhythm
I did a short video to give you an idea



Please let me know if you have any questions!

So this is the one I did by mistake the last time? Should play better by now, hopefully happy.gif
Thanks for posting the video.

Can you move this thread to the "Pinned" one, please?

Hey Alex,
is it correct to say you play the E bass over the kick and the full chord over the snare ?
I'm on it smile.gif
PS : you did not comment my last attempt on the first assignment. Is it that bad ? huh.gif

Sorry I was meaning to reply but I think I missed it! smile.gif
You did a very good job! The third phrase is a little off and for some reason I hear two guitars?

Hey Alex,
you're right, there are two guitars. I thought that with two guitars, I would know if my timing was good. It seems not sad.gif

I've worked on your third task. It's harder that I thought, but it' really fun. I hope I understood well what you were waiting for. Tell me what you think. smile.gif

Cheers.

Sounds good! On the second strum you are rushing sometimes but it's almost there! I also will suggest to turn off overdrive and go clean, because you will have more control over your sound!
I will post a new task tomorrow and looking forward to hear your next take!

Hey Alex,
I've tried this one. Seemed easier than the previous one. Hope it's OK.

You are almost there! Try to listen to what I played carefully and you will notice the difference!
Also you are rushing a little bit. What you can do is concentrate on the drums while you are playing and force yourself to play behind!
Let me know how it goes and if you have any questions!

Very nice take! You are playing too much ahead and rushing! What I would suggest is to try to concentrate on the drums and really force yourself to play behind! It will feel like it's too much, but try to record yourself and you will hear the difference!
The thing about rhythm is you have to understand the groove and feel it than you have a full control over it and can do anything you want!

You did everything correctly I just want you to learn how to feel the groove try to do that:
Really listen to the drums and try to hear exactly what he is playing, after that start playing the exercise I gave you and really focus on your rhythm! Every take you do record yourself! I will give another exercise on Wednesday it will be really simple and it might be easier for you to start with! Also try to learn my Funk Rhythms lesson it will help you a lot as well!

Hey Alex, I thought we had to play on ALL kicks and snares. But that's not what you do. Also, you had a 16th strum I think, that is not played by the drums. Am I right ?
Thanks.

I was playing all the kicks and only skipped the last snare.
Idea of this exercises is for you to also analyze rhythm guitar and learn how to hear the strums!
