Rhythmic Development (Summertime)
In this lesson we learn how to develop your rhythmic language by identifying the most common patterns we play and developing new ones.
I use the backing track to the chord progression from 'Summertime' to demonstrate and the track along with a chord chart are listed below the video.
Backing Track: 'Summertime' chord progression.
Whilst watching the videos in this course I noticed a lot of similar rhythms in my solos. In addition the process of transcribing the lines was especially useful and it surprised me how often these rhythms would occur. I would recommend that you also write out your lines as it's a process that has given me lots to work on and I found it hugely useful.
