Blues Comping #9: Rhythms (combination)


For today's lesson, I've listed four comping rhythms that use one attack on the beat and another attack on an offbeat. Example E1 and E2 are start on beat one followed by a syncopated rhythmic attack. In example F1 and F2, I did the opposite and played an offbeat rhythmic attack first.

Try playing each of these rhythms and then come up with your own rhythms (with two attacks per measure). I would recommend writing around ten to twenty different rhythms (some just on the off beats, some just on the beat and some in combination like the examples above). After writing them, play all of them and choose your favorite rhythms to practice.
