After each Your lesson I learn that I have more and more to learn, no one cares that my brain is occupied with playing 4/4 rhythms to it's fullness!:D
This is sooo cool!
I love this lesson! Very technical yet super melodic. I love it!
Excellent lesson Ramiro, very informative and useful !
Sounds very cool, reminds me on old Nintendo games!
Very interesting, this is more like tempo changes then polyryhthms!
Very interesting lesson with a lot of different ideas!
Excellent lesson about rhythm!
great lesson Ramiro! i never heard of this before. R polyrythms many rythms in a song? Im not exactly sure but it sounds like it
Wow, that must be very hard Playing two rhythms at the same time!
Weird stuff but cool lesson
Very interesting, great job Ramiro!
Don't miss the second part of this lesson in the section "New and recent lessons"
I am fairly certain that I'll be prepared to attempt the rythms in this lesson sometime in 2015.
Excellent lesson Ramiro
Wow! Cool rhythms changes
brilliant stuff, I like these unpredictable moments
Hi GMC! In this lesson we will learn to play some polyrhythms. Basically 4 against 3, 4 against 5 and 2 against 3 (that's the same as 4 against 6).
As reference I took the book by Peter Magadini named “Polyrhythms”. This kind of rhythmic operation is important to create independence when you have to listen to more than one line simultaneously and of course when you have to play one. For drummers this is like a basic training because they're always playing with this kind of stuff. I made this lesson and some others in order to incorporate this to our guitar world like Ron Thal says in a clinic he made in France, polyrhythms are important to separate your brain and think independent rhythms happening together.
We will have to think not only in the result of the complex rhythm but also in each part of the polyrhythm so we are sure that we are assimilating really well the exercise.
Polyrhythms are not only good to elaborate an intelectual skill but also you can find them (as Peter Magadini says in his book) in some ethnic music from Africa and in contemporary composition like in the work of Brian Ferneyhough.
Also you can find this resources in progressive music, bands like Planet X, or in jazz sometimes the drummers play a huge amount of rhythms at the same time.
As I need two voices to create a polyrhythm I thought that was a good idea to play these lessons with tapping technique and exercise that technique too.
Let's get nuts with rhythm :)
I hope you enjoy the lesson!
