Listening Up! Guitar Philosophy - Rhythm

Al Joseph 245 lessons

Most of us know that without a good sense of rhythm, music can be played but not expressed. Rhythm is in and throughout everything that is. Think about how you speak to your lawyer as opposed to children. Think about how you speak to your spouse as opposed to your best friends. It's all about rhythm. How you time jumping of the escalator or crossing the street, rhythm. 

Take a minute to ponder these things. This can and will change your musical life forever. Rhythm isn't about imposing your sense of feel or taste. It's about exploring and riding my a particular current. For those of you struggling with time feel, try understanding that the current of rhythm is already there for you to ride. Don't fight it. Only listen.
