Rhythm is the key to much of what we aspire to be as players. Solid rhythm chops get you more gigs; expand your musical horizons and translate directly into better soloing chops. And there's nothing better than a new "groove" to bust out of that proverbial "rut" we all sink into from time to time. No doubt about it, rhythm is king.
Rhythmic Grooves thoroughly examines how rhythmic patterns are constructed, executed and applied to various styles of music. This intensive study program will turn your whole understanding of rhythm right-side up.
You'll start at ground zero "playing drums" on the guitar and learning how to get "in the pocket" and stay there. You'll progress into the "ring/dead" technique with a variety of right-hand picking combinations. Slurs and ties are then introduced with techniques for deleting pick strokes. These approaches are then applied to creating and executing "bubble parts" for maximum groove. You'll learn to master double and triple subdivision patterns, advanced cross-rhythms and triplet rhythms. In short, Rhythmic Grooves will overhaul every aspect of your rhythm skills.
