Watch the Free Time / Tempo online guitar lesson by TrueFire from Play Country Guitar 7: Style Variations

Free Time / Tempo - Concept 9 is a video guitar lesson presented by Roberto Dalla Vecchia and is sourced from Solo Flatpicking Handbook.


There is a time and place to keep a steady beat, and that's why it's good to practice with the metronome to improve our sense of rhythm, but sometimes I really enjoy playing music without a steady beat. Some songs are supposed to be played just like that, with lots of accelerando and ritardando. This is a major skill to develop as a solo act who wants to convey emotions.
