Two more rhythm lessons here, for beginners on any instrument (be sure to watch the first two beginner rhythm lessons, if you haven't already, so you're all caught up!)
In this short video I explain what a count off is, how and why musicians use them.
And in this slightly longer video, I explain what coordination is and share some simple exercises that also help work out basic rhythm principles.
Wow! I haven't posted since February! Well, I have lots of great excuses, including that I've helped my wife launch D'Lolly's Uptown Bakeshop here in Washington Heights. But you don't want to hear about my lame excuses, you want new video music lessons!
Here are the latest, some beginner music theory lessons on rhythm. They compliment each other, so I highly recommend you watch both!
In this short video, I explain what the BEAT in music is and how metronomes are used to play along with the beat.
In this short video, I explain the difference between kinds of music notes (whole, half, quarter, eighth) and their relation to the beat and to each other.
Also, I forgot to post a guitar lesson video back in February about the 12 Bar Blues progression in the key of A. There's also a 12 Bar Blues progression play-along video here.
