Description

Years ago, my first music teacher told me that my poor sense of rhythm would probably prevent me from ever becoming a successful musician. Now I make my living as a rhythm guitarist.
How do you count time in music? Are you in time when you play your songs? Do you want to sound exactly like the music you’re learning?
This course, which includes more than 39 videos and 14 exercises, will provide you with an easy method for counting time in music; teach you how to use the metronome as a practice aid; and show you how to practice playing at 2, 3 or 4 notes per beat. If you struggle to stay on the beat, the exercises introduced here are a mini-course in how to maintain the rhythmic pulse. If you feel that you have a terrible sense of rhythm, I can assure you that, like any other music-related topic, rhythmic sense is something which can be learned. With the exercises in this course, you can master off-beats, triplets, and the ability to count any rhythm in rock-steady time.
Want to clap in time to a song and feel like you are a member of the band? Want to develop your musicality? Learning an instrument and want to sound really good when you play it?
For all of the above, a highly-developed sense of rhythm is crucial! This course will guide you from the very beginning in: how to use the metronome; how to develop your sense of rhythm through clapping; how to recognize a time signature and determine the time values of notes and rests; how to count eighth-notes, triplets, sixteenth-notes and dotted notes.
Although the first few exercises are very easy and basic in nature, the material becomes progressively more difficult as each new level is presented. By the end of the 7th level, you will find that you are practicing some exercises which are very challenging to clap and count.
In this course you will learn:
•How to remain in time, learning the difference between 2, 3, and 4 notes per beat.
•How to count the off-beat, the triplets, or the e-and-a’s.
•How to clap to music.
•14 exercises to help you become a “rhythm master”
I am a Spanish/Flamenco guitarist. In the type of music which I play, it is extremely important to remain in time, and to be able play complex rhythms. Furthermore, if you plan to play with other people or in a band, everyone involved needs to be able to maintain the same, and consistent, rhythm. So, for anyone contemplating a future in music, the material covered in this course is essential.
If you are a guitarist who has become accustomed to learning new music from tablature (TAB), the information in this course can be useful in the following way: nowadays, most of the guitar music which is presented in tablature form also includes traditional musical notation. While the TAB is accurate in telling you what notes to play, it does not provide you with the rhythmic value of each note. That information is only available in the traditional notation score. So, to make the most of these two combined forms of notation when learning a new tune, you can follow the rhythm from the traditional score, and learn the notes from the TAB. This way you never have to learn how to read music – you can just learn how to read TAB from tablature, and derive the rhythmic values from traditional notation.
On the other hand, if you are playing an instrument other than guitar, you will almost certainly have to learn how to read music, and the challenging material in this course will reinforce your musical knowledge about rhythm in traditional music notation.
Whether you’re a beginner seeking to unlock your natural rhythm, or an experienced player looking to resolve timing issues when playing your instrument — improve your rhythm with me and start your course today!
