Syncopation City

Time for Something Cool

As mentioned in a previous lesson, syncopation is an important aspect of R & B and soul music. This lick highlights that. You may need to loop it in the full song, along with measure 3, to really get the feel for it. Watching the video repeatedly will help as well.
