I'd wish for a lesson about? Ot perhaps even several... might be perfect for a beginner/intermediate/advanced lesson. A progressive rhythm lesson to come to understand changes between 4:4 into 7:8 f.ex

Or how about 9:8? For example: When I play the guitar intro from Surrounded (Dream Theater) I have to count the notes AND the pauses, count to nine, and it's very confusing since the drums don't help, I have to shut them out. The end part before going into 4:4 it's possible to count 1,2,3,4 1,2,3,4,5 but... yeah... progrssive rhythm isn't that easy. I know Gabriel had a lesson on it before but I want more, i NEED more laugh.gif

So to sum it up - Lessons on progressive rhythm - beginner/intermediate/advanced

Suggestion for beginner lessons
7:8
+ other progrssive rhythm, basics

Intermediate to advanced
Changes from 4:4 into 7:8 (as an example)
9:8
Changes from 2:2 into 4:4 into 7:8 back to 2:2 (or something wierd like that)


And the purpose is NOT to learn cool patterns but to get an understanding of the differemt rhythms, being able to get em stuck in the brain like a 4:4


Any takers on that?

I can't agree with you more. At GMC the obvious focus is on technique ie the constantly growing legato, sweep picking, alt picking, etc lessons and solos that are released daily. However, we should definitely start branching out and focusing on new dimensions of music that are just as important to practice. Rhythym is one of them, and Progressive rhythyms is a great example to challenge and train our ears to different patterns of musical time whilst still putting it into a context of music.

Your idea of using a beginner/intermediate/advanced scheme is also a great idea because that way it would be accessible to many different levels of players on the site, and at the same time being able to cover a lot more material in its collective 3 parts.

Good Idea Mick smile.gif

bump


Bumping this thread since I'm convinced more people than just me and Anastasio would benefit from mastering the progressive rhythm approach.

I know we have teachers that are up for the task and I know we have f.ex Gabriels progressive lesson but there's a LOT more to cover in this area. And I think the novice would need a simple introduction lesson and the advanced player some real difficult stuff to work with.
