Learning Polyrhythms

Many acoustic guitar players are not formally taught.

Just like myself, many of you learned from books, magazines, dvds, playing with other musicians – anything except getting formal guitar lessons.


I’m totally ok with that way of learning.

After all, that was the route that I took myself.

One thing that you see with guitar players  as a result, however, is that their timing is often an area that can be improved.

We don’t all learn music, play to a metronome or challenge ourselves to keep time as often as other musicians.


So let me show you some rhythm techniques to open up your playing a bit and to challenge it.

It’s fun to improve the areas that we identify.


This video will show you how to count a 3/2 polyrhythm.
