Time & Rhythm: A Two-Fisted Study in 3/4 Time

3/4 Time is more than three equivalent pulses strung together. 3/4 time defines a recurring pattern where the first of three pulses gets more emphasis than the second and third.

If you haven’t done so already, watch the following video that explains how to do these two-fisted, clapping time in your lap studies for maximum benefit…

Pattern: 3 Right versus 1 Left (@ 60, 100, 140, 180 BPM)…


Pattern: 3 Left versus 1 Right (a mirror image of the above)…


Pattern: Left-Right-Right (Oom-Pah-Pah)


Pattern: Right-Left-Left (a mirror image of the above)…


Watch Frank model how to play-study-practice the patterns above…
