Playing in Time...

Mark Badham posted this 04 September 2015

Just wanted to mention Natural Rhythm l believe it does help if you know when you're able to recognise a beat and immediately play along... it's all about co-ordination like playing a scale to a metronome or drum machine some can play perfect first time others it takes time...when starting guitar if you can pick each individual note of the scale clearly then you have the foundations for playing correctly.

Anyone agree?...is Natural Rhythm a fact or fiction?. Anyone really struggle with Timing?

Some people find it easier, for sure! Though that doesn't mean it's not a skill you can develop.... it's just going to take a lot of time! :)

I agree Levi it does take a lot of time...if you want to hear a great track using various timings try System of a Down track Chop Suey or just get the album Toxcity and listen how timing can be used to extremes!!!!...

hahaha man, that's not even close to extreme

even BYOB is a better example (intro is 16th notes, verse is variation in triplets at same tempo)

you want extremes... check this!

I don't go too much into that world any more, but I've been there. I really like the German band Panzerballett. They do a lot of "covers" with their original material, so you'll hear thuderstruck, paranoid, the pink panther theme etc.... but not like you've heard before!

and if you know any Brecker Brothers... here's a SERIOUS mind fuck.... they take the melody that's in 4 and play it 5 notes ber beat against a rhythm section in 4... :/
