I GOT RHYTHM, PART 9
Introducing 16th rests
In this lesson, Guitar World's Senior Music Editor, Jimmy Brown, continues his discussion on rhythm fundamentals with syncopations. He shows us how 16th rests are notated, and offers examples of how they can be used in combinations with 16th notes and other rhythmic values to create a variety of rhythms and some interesting and tricky-sounding syncopations, or accentuations of what are normally considered the “weak” parts of the beat.
