Watch the Rhythmic Subdivisions online guitar lesson by Dweezil Zappa from Dweezology: Phrase Generators
In this section I begin to lay out some of the techniques I use as the foundation for the "Phrase Generators" concept. I designed it as I way to take what I already knew about playing 2 notes per string and 3 notes per string and morphed them into a new concept of 5 note groupings. 2 phrases played together but sub divided as 2 + 3 or even 3+2. Because 2 odd numbers equal an even number, playing in time will not be a problem. In this lesson we go on feel and aren't concerned about note values, 8ths 16ths etc. You will soon realize the benefits of rhythmic subdivisions and that playing groupings of odd number allows for sophisticated rhythmic contours and grooves to take shape.
