6/8 Rock - Exercise 1

Welcome folks!

In this tutorial, we'll be focusing on a rock tune in 6/8 time, hence the amazingly creative title, "6/8 Rock". :) You can think of 6/8 as having a span of six eighth notes per measure. Listen for the high-hat count at the beginning of the video, and you'll hear six hits. Count along with those hits, then try to keep the count going as you listen to the song. Simply count..."One, two, three, four, five, six".

Also, even though I marked this tutorial as intermediate, it does have a few advanced sections. However, I still chose to mark it as intermediate because I feel it's a good song for intermediate players to sink their teeth into some advanced techniques.

Once you've checked out the video and let the 6/8 feel sink in, head on over to the next page!
