Following up on the success of his first ebook “30 Days to Better Jazz Guitar,” guitarist and educator Matt Warnock has just released his latest work, “Modern Time,” which brings to light the exciting possibilities that rhythmic study can open up for musicians of all instruments and all levels of experience.
“Modern Time’s” focus is to help students develop a solid understanding of how rhythms and rhythmic groupings work; how they can be manipulated and expanded as well as how to apply all of this knowledge to both technical and improvisational exercises.
Each concept is presented in an easy to understand fashion, and is accompanied by multiple exercises that focus on developing your control of rhythmic material from both a technical and improvisational standpoint.
