Blues Comping #8: Rhythms (off the beat)


Today's A Chord A Day lesson continues yesterday study of different rhythms for comping. Here, all the examples are off the beat, i.e. syncopated rhythms. These are trickier so my advice is to practice one rhythm at a time, perhaps alternating between one of these examples and another from the Blues Comping #7 so that you don't lose the beat. If you're ready for a challenge, pick one rhythm from this lesson and keep that as the rhythm throughout a chorus of the blues. Play with a metronome or backing track so that you won't turn the time around accidentally since the rhythms are all syncopated.
