We all like to think
we have good independence.
But if you think
about it, most of the time we are playing with co-dependence stacking beats on top of each other so they all line up .
making sure that hi
hat or snare falls on the same beat
and that lines up with the kick drum etc
The problem with
this way of thinking is that there always has to be one part playing as the main subdivision and everything works around that and can sound like it to!.
A better way
to use co-dependence is to relate everything to a separate source,,,,, counting ! If you can count a straight 1,2,3,4, over your playing ,fills everything,
you will be playing
with co-ordination,and have a much stronger sense of time,
A lack of co-ordination shows
just how co-dependent we really are.
The limbs work together
in our evey day lives.eg Just look at how we walk and run.
So to we must teach
our self' a new way to function
and thats a lot of catching
up to do !
so why are you sat here
