Watch your tim­ing

Guitar Techniques - - PLAY -

Gui­tarists are no­to­ri­ous for rush­ing ahead of the beat dur­ing tricky pas­sages, or where time changes oc­cur. We can of­ten dash from one me­tre to an­other and ar­rive no­tice­ably early, rather than tak­ing our time and slip­ping into the new rhythm with ease. So take ex­tra spe­cial care in the sec­tions where the 6/8 me­tre shifts from groups of two to groups of three; make it sound like you’re in con­trol of the tim­ing – not the other way around!
