In this JGT mini-lesson series, Tom Lippincott covers a subject that doesn’t get talked about nearly enough in the jazz guitar world: Rhythm.

Rhythm is Everything…Plenty of instructional material covering melody and harmony on the guitar is already available, but few jazz guitarists have a concrete idea of how to systematically work on rhythm. These lessons will show you how to improve your overall rhythmic sense as well as give you practical applications for the concepts.


Example 1: eighth-notes


Example 2: eighth-note triplets


Example 3: typical representation of swing eighth-notes


Example 4: each eighth-note in a measure of 4/4


Example 5: eighth-note triplets â€” first, second, and third


Stay tuned for the next lessons in the series!
