Practicing 2:3 and 4:3 polyrhythms with the metronome



With italian, finnish and english subtitles! To turn them on just click the subtitles icon at the bottom of the video (CC or = ). To change the subtitles language click on the settings icon right next to the subtitles icon.

In this video I explain some ways to practice polyrhythms with the metronome.

Thanks to fellow guitarist Samuel Huhtahaara for introducing me to practicing polyrhythms a few years ago!

I made some of the video’s sound effects and the background music, which you can find here (featuring an improvised solo):
