Watch the Brubeck online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from 30 Jazz Guitar Rhythms You MUST Know
Rhythm 20 is titled "Brubeck" and is in the 5/4 time signature. We use the same chords for the beginning of the iconic hit song, "Take Five". The chords we use are Ebmin7 and Bbmin. The first three beats are the same rhythm as the jazz waltz, then we simply play two quarter notes on the Bbmin chord for beats 4 and 5, then back to the Ebmin. Play along with the Brubeck version of "Take Five" to fully understand the style.
