#NoSheetsChallenge 003 | Try learning this lick without sheet music!
As a musician, an important skill to have is learning music by watching and listening. Knowing how to read music is important, but sometimes you won’t always get the luxury of having sheet music.
So don’t write this out or physically transcribe this. Instead, learn by watching over and over, playing in segments, and try to mimic what you see and hear.
Enjoy this and let’s see who can learn this without the sheets!
This one is tricky! Here are some notes to help you out:
TIME SIGNATURE: 3/4
MEASURE 1: Consists of 16th Notes, 8th Notes, and Triplets.
MEASURE 2: Is now off the left and has a similar rhythm as measure 1, but there is a 4:3 in the Flam 9. The sticking is also different where the diddles are added.
MEASURE 3: This bar is all 16th Note based.
(1-.-.-A .-.-&-. .-E-.-.)
RELEASE: Release with a flam.
PRACTICE. POST. TAG.
