Mystifying Your Rhythm - Part I Mystifying Your Rhythm - Part III

 

PART II:
Ex. 2 - "9 Within 3" - 1: So let's put this new feel to use. This lick is intended to be played over a 4/4 groove. If you'll notice, however, it's written in 3/4 first, and 4/4 second. The purpose for this is so that we can understand more clearly where the lick repeats after shifting down a position. Make sure you practice this lick to a 4/4 click while playing eighth note triplets.
Ex. 3 - "9 Within 3" - 2: Let's turn up the complexity knob just a little. Use the same developmental approach as in the previous exercise. Practice the three groups of eighth note triplets, and then connect the pieces while playing over 4/4. Note the techinques involved in this lick - M, meaning right hand middle finger. Substituting this hybrid technique for an exclusively picked approach is optional.
