The Swing Feel


[ padding=”0 20px 0 20px”]
Are you a swinger baby? Do you swing?

The term Swing refers to the musical technique of playing eighth notes unevenly, creating a skipping effect in the rhythm.

The down beats are extended and the upbeats shortened.

A good way to get the swing feel into your head is by counting triplets without the middle note.

Straight vs. Swung
