Guitar Techniques - - LEARNING ZONE -

Pat’s play­ing is at times as rhyth­mi­cally de­vel­oped as it is har­mon­i­cally so­phis­ti­cated and this ex­am­ple typ­i­fies the rhyth­mic com­po­nent of his im4pxrx­oxvx­isx­ax­tx­ioxnxsx­per­fectly. each as­cend­ing three-note mo­tific fig­ure is ma­nip­u­lated just slightly to avoid di­rect rep­e­ti­tion but main­tains a sense of co­he­sion. Metheny has the abil­ity to per­form highly syn­co­pated lines with­out ever los­ing the sense of ex­actly where the pulse is, so your task is to keep your foot tap in place through­out to in­ter­nalise the lo­ca­tion of the down­beat at all times.
