Want to optimise your rhythm practice?
Rhythm is the part of music that makes us move and grove, its what makes us tap our foot when we listen to an awesome song.
We believe that rhythm gives life to a song, and that is why it is so important. So how can you be sure that your rhythm is on point? Through rhythm practice of course!
We are going to give you some quick practice tips that will upgrade your rhythm practice experience. You can do your rhythm practice through our awesome (and free) metronome app “The Metronome” (Download it now) or your Soundbrenner Pulse (Find out more).
Focus on practicing rhythm
Most people when practicing their instrument do not focus on practicing rhythm, so step 1 is to start focusing on rhythm during some elements of your practice session.
Try improvising with different beats and different styles of music. Becoming a better musician is not about memorizing songs, scales or grooves and is more about developing a natural-sounding rhythm. This method of improvisational practice will help you build your rhythm fast.
The best way to use the metronome is to slow down any passages you find difficult; this lets you work through challenging bars without making mistakes and lets you gradually increase the speed as you become more familiar with it. Find a challenging section and isolate it when practicing, identify the shortest note in this section. Set your metronome to 60 BPM and drill through the passage with the shortest note equal to 60 BPM.
Drill the weak stuff
Practice sections of the music where you have the most trouble. The bits where you just can’t seem to stay in time. The more you play it, the tighter you will get.
