Mystifying Your Rhythm - Part III

Chris Feener 256 lessons

 

PART III:
So, in keeping with the "staying away from the index finger establishing the down beat" format, let's try "Ex. 4 - Back To The Basics"; a more stuccato, straight sixteenth approach. Here is a lick with a very defined beginning and end, with a whole wack of confusion in the middle. You'll feel the rhythm shifting even while playing 16th notes the whole way through. Again, the main concept to be taken away from this tutorial is that, while your fingers are playing positions which consist of three frets, letting the scales play YOU is what we're trying avoid at all costs. Force the things you already know to create lines that stand out.
