Strengthening Time Feels Using Polyrhythms

In this pack, Linda Oh shows you how you can use a metronome and polyrhythms to strengthen your time feel. This is a very rich pack whose concepts will take much practice to master. Not for the faint of heart! (For advanced players.)

In this pack, Linda Oh teaches you how to use a metronome to strengthen your time feel. By putting the metronome on different beats in the measure, you not only help to solidify your internal time sense, but you also improve your ability to use more interesting polyrhtyhms in your playing. After you are comfortable playing with the metronome on the various beats that Linda demonstrates, you can take the concepts to the next level by seeing if you can switch back and forth between the four/four feel and going with the metronome. Good luck!
