Watch the Beat 2 online guitar lesson by Robbie Calvo from Power Phrasing
In this section we are going to displace our phrases across beat 2 of our shuffle rhythm. As expected you’ll notice more space for the harmony and rhythm section before we start our phrases. My personal favorite start points on beat 2 are on the 2nd and 3rd 8ths of the beat. Phrases starting on the down beat sound a little flat to me unless they are the last of a series of 4 phrases. Check out my intro video again to hear what I mean by that.
