Watch the Approach 2: Breakdown online guitar lesson by Adam Levy from Rhythm Makeover: Adam Levy
In Approach #2, we’ll roll a fairly steady stream of eighth notes, but we avoid playing on the strong downbeats. That gives the part a floaty feeling - it’s not so strongly anchored. The drums play on beat one, the bass plays on beat one. Of course, we can too, but we don’t always have to.
