Through this lesson you will be taking a right hand sixteenth note rhythm and adding simple eighth note accents. These two concepts individually are very common but combining them can be challenging on your right hand. At the bottom the page you will find a list of links to lessons you may find helpful when learning these parts. At all times, watch the dynamic level of each limb and make sure it is at the appropriate volume.
Spend some time getting comfortable playing your right hand in this way then work through the examples below.
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all grooves up to a tempo of at least 120bpm.
- Create your own variations on these patterns. Write as many down as possible.
- Experiment with other syncopated rhythms on the right hand.
