View Full Version : Swing?

I also notice the fact that no matter what the group or band is playing for whatever professional product or dance or whatever
They do not know how to swing properly! between the percussion playing In 2/4 time instead of 4/4 and the rythm doing some other kind of beat, the result just keeps time-and no more.-. This is the result of years of neglect of good swinging music styles. the guitar always stuck to strict '4' in the bar in chords, with no upward strokes generating quavers or 8th beats, that is the one and only way to 'Swing'! If the leader wanted he would indicate to various other players to take a solo, that is the only time that the players would deviate from their otherwise strict styles.................Enough!
