GTK160: Manipulating The Time-Behind & Ahead Of The Beat Playing
A lesson that delves into the concept of manipulating time and feel of the music. By controlling where you put the pulse of your bass lines relative to the 'absolute time' of the music, you can imply different moods and feels in order to convey emotion and momentum. Specific concepts are discussed, including timing internalization, including playing 'behind the beat,', 'on top of' or 'ahead of the beat,' and playing in 'absolute time.' Genre-related concepts are also discussed, stressing the importance of the bassist's traditional role in different styles of music. This is a great lesson for those looking to expand their control of time and feel in ensemble settings. Recommended for intermediate to advance level players who already have a solid sense of timing and pulse.
