One, two, three, one, two
>> There you have it.
Now, it's time for you to submit some
I'm gonna give feedback.
And what I'm, what I'm gonna look for in
these videos are, are you guys playing in,
and working on all the things that we've
just talked about in this,
in this section on rhythm, rhythm Basics
for Bluegrass.
And so what that's going to cover, what
I'm looking for specifically are,
changes rhythm changes, solid rhythm
changes on the left hand.
You know, good left hand technique that
comes from-
You know,
learning those chord shapes and getting,
getting back and forth, quickly.
And you can work through all these things.
All, all the four bar patterns.
You know, just show these simple exercises
and, and for a beginner or
you know, someone at the basic level, what
I'm going to be looking for in,
in the songs, is a ability to sort of stay
with the rhythm.
And stay with the, stay with the melody as
it's played.
And, you all know, obviously, if you've
you know, learned the chords, learned the,
learned the progressions.
And so all of those things I'll be looking
for and giving feedback and, and,
really wanna, really wanna help you
through this step.
