ExamplE6 tight Rhythmic phRasing
More open-string action here and once again we see the dorian mode, although this time we’re in d (d-E-F-G-a-B-C). Our focus here though is less about the notes and more on their rhythmic placement. Krantz is fastidiously analytical when it comes to time keeping and frequently records his own playing when practising to hear if he’s rushing or dragging. needless to say, it’s usually absolutely dead centre of the beat and that’s what you’re aiming for here.
