The full title doesn’t fit, so I put the part I’m sure would get more attention!
Polyrhythms Part 1 : Theory, Basics and INTENSE Polyrhythmic Blast Beats!
FREE .pdf transcription available here : http://www.aaronedgar.com/Files/polyrhythms1.pdf
This is the first instalment in a weekly series that will be getting posted every monday night until it’s done (nine weeks total).
I took all the values from eighth notes to thirty second notes and created every polyrhythm possible from those, of which there are 28.
This episode covers the basics. Theory, 2 over 3 and 3 over 2, touching on how they’re different although they sound identical with no musical context. Also, 4 over 3 and 3 over 4. We go from totally basic to polyrhythmic blast beats!
Lastly, I’m trying something new here! You can buy a masterclass version of this video. Which includes over ten minutes of bonus lessons and material. * Three new polyrhythmic grooves * Three new polyrhythmic fills * Alternate practice methods * Five variations on a Gary Chaffee-esque polyrhythmic drum break and THIRTY-SIX rhythmic variations on the four polyrhythms covered in the original video. And of course, transcriptions to match! You can buy the masterclass version via paypal directly from my site : http://www.aaronedgar.com/store.php
