In this lesson you will continue developing ideas for phrasing, this time in the Time Signature Of 6/8 using Two Bar Grooves. A similar idea has been covered in 4/4 in This Lesson and the parts presented on this page will follow the exact same idea just in the new time signature. The intention here is to improve your ability to play in 6/8, develop your ideas for building parts and to improve your ability to switch between grooves and fills.
Below are a few examples of an A A A B structure where each letter refers to a two bar pattern. Various ideas for fill construction have been used. When you have learned the given examples have a go at creating your own parts. The structure for the examples will be this:
- Using the 2 minute rule, get all phrases up to a tempo of at least 120bpm.
- Create your own versions of these patterns based on the original structure.
