  • Hello Gmc,

    In this lesson we’re going to focus on our timing. Timing is an essential part of music. It's what makes a band or solo artist sound tight and punchy.

    Among some other rhythmical figures, I have used jazzy 8th notes. These jazzy 8th notes are actually formed from 8th note triplets, when we tie the first two notes together.

    We’re also going to use the straight 4th note triplets, quarter notes, regular 8th notes.

    The purpose of mixing all these different note durations is for you to be really aware of the sutil differences between them. There is a difference in the actual feel when you play these different rhythms.

    It would be really helpful to first sing the lesson in your head and out loud to become familiar with the rhythm, because your rhythm sense actually that doesn’t have anything to do with your actual physical technique but rather with the calibration, thinking and feeling of the notes.

    After you do that, it’s going to be way easier to play it on the actual instrument.

    Rock it!
