So I'm gonna play through
all the things you are one more time.
And I'm gonna concentrate on,
now on changing up the rhythms some.
Be concentrating on a lot
of the eighth notes.
I did a little bit of double time on the
last one, a little bit of triplets, but
I want to do even more of that.
Sometimes I'll spend like a whole chorus
just trying to just play triplets.
And when I say triplets of course,
da-da-da da-da-da da-da-da da,
one-two-three one-two-three
one-two-three one-two-three,
would be the eighth note triplet.
But there's also half of that,
which is the quarter note triplet.
So you can get a broad long
three feel against it.
So if the tempo is, one,
two, three, four
You know, it's a long triplet,
a quarter note triplet over the whole bar.
And then when you start,
if you start with something like that
you can use little brief segments of
bass note triplets inside of that,
leading up to maybe doing a whole line
in a triplet feel.
And then of course there's the double
time, trying to play fast,
we all like to do that that's just
sixteenth notes against the temp.
So instead of da, t-da, t-da, t-da.
It's d-ca, d-ca, d-ca,
d-ca, d-ca, d-ca da.
16 notes so, let's see how I do,
I'm going to try to make this
a rhythmic exercise, on the grid
all the things you are, here we go.
We'll be use a couple of them.
