    It's what a lot of us do. Laziness has nothing to do with it.

    Thanks mainly to the kindly patience of @fezz parka and @davidKOS, as well as @Thrup'ny Bit's fine backing track and all your great takes, my brain is now brimming with ideas for chord voicings my fingers can't quite execute! Knowing that playing anything at a tempo too fast for even and reliable execution is a very bad idea, I've used time stretch to make this 90BPM version. It's downloadable if you'd like to use it as a practice aid.



    Thanks also to @knh555 for the tempo suggestion that sparked this idea.

    This proves these 'talent scout' parasites don't even listen to what you post: "Joyce Dumas likes one of your tracks on SoundCloud". Sod off Joyce! :D:D:D

    They are all young and beautiful girls, per their pics. Some have a guy's picture and an obvious girl's name...oops. I've also noted likes with no corresponding plays. Oh the life of a modern day rock star.

    Dare1 the rhythm you played here was so spot on that I went back and listened to the original BT to make sure it wasn’t there lol!
    Of course it wasn’t there somehow I forgot that it was drums and bass only .

    Thank you very much!

    Haha thanks Thrup! I appreciate it!

    Thanks Duzie! I really appreciate that! I'm not gonna lie though, I had to go look up some of those chords because I had no idea what they looked like haha

    One question..I'm not trying to pursue any specific tone, I'm just wondering if there is a commonly used tone for rhythm? As usual, I try to play jazzy melody/lead, which tone would fit it?

    A tone that fits the rest of the rhythm section; that lets all the notes on the chord sound; and one that you like.

    For music that has 4 note chords, the tone has to be clean enough to let all those pitches sound clearly...but that's my opinion. I often use what another S-T member called an "excruciatingly clean tone" for this stuff.
