The Brown’stone: The Fundamentals of Time & The Metronome – Part 2

In this lesson, we’re looking at part two of our Metronome Study Series. We’ll be taking two-note phrases through the 16th note subdivision in a very simple (but very hip) way.

These exercises are meant to improve your time feel and give you a much better understanding of the possibilities available to you with the 16th note subdivision. I hope you enjoy the lesson!

Be sure to check out the previous lesson in this series.
