Three over two is the essential polyrhythm — the musical equivalent of tapping your head and rubbing your tummy at the same time. This course will help you master this technique on guitar.
First, Horace instructs mastering the rhythm with only your hands and voice. After that, you’ll pick up the guitar and focus on the technical challenges involved in executing the rhythm. Once that’s feeling good, the rhythm keeps chugging away, and Horace will help you stretch out with melodic baby steps, beginning by altering one note at a time, and ending with diatonic drop-2 chords.
You’ll get a lot out of this course if you feel rhythmic inflexibility in your playing and would like to work on switching between duple and triple feels. There are no licks or chops in here — this is all about rhythm.
