The Brown’stone: The Fundamentals of Time & The Metronome – Part 4

I’m very excited about this lesson. This video is the last in our Metronome Series. Putting in the work from the previous three videos will get you to this point. Please do check out those previous lessons (part 1, part 2, and part 3) and get yourself caught up if you haven’t. You’ll be so glad you did.

In this lesson, I’ll be using the information we’ve gained from our analysis of the 16th-note subdivision to show you how you can develop your own cool, grooving bass lines. I’ll also demonstrate the freedom and rhythmic variety that can be achieved once you’ve gained a more profound comprehension of the 16th-note subdivision. This one is a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it.
