Watch the Subdivide Your Beat online guitar lesson by Kai Eckhardt from Atomic Bass: Time Continuum

In this video I show you how to map out nine by assigning groups of 2, 2, 2 and a 3 to your four fingers hovering over the fingerboard. Next I will show you how this translates into a rhythm and how you can transpose that rhythm into quarter, eighth and sixteenth notes. After you manage that, I will move the numbers around to 3, 2, 2, 2 giving you a whole new rhythm. We will move the 3 around some more and you will begin to understand how the order of numbers creates new grooves in the process.
