Are you looking for a formula to create grooves over a chord progression? Check out this episode of Talking Technique! This lesson features an exercise that helps you hone your technique while building grooves from triads.
I have a I-vi-IV-V chord progression for you. Let’s use a formula that has two main ingredients: rhythm and triad notes. That’s your tonal material: the triad notes and you can play them in any order you like.
The second ingredient is a rhythm. I will break that process down for you by starting you out with a formula that stays consistent and creates a groove.
Once you get the hang of it, can add more ingredients such as dynamics, phrasing, variations, various playing techniques, and much more. Follow along this PDF with examples.
