Play in time now!
This month’s riffs use ‘16th notes’. They get their name because you can have up to 16 of them in a row in a bar of music in 4/4 time. If you can synchronise your pick strokes with the 16th notes, you’ll nail the timing.
In sheet music, four 16th notes in a row look like this.
On the downside…
Sometimes they’ll be the other way up but they’re still 16th notes.
16th notes are pretty quick, so play down up down up to stay in time.
Keep it up!
Keep your down-up movement going, even when some of the notes aren’t played.
