The Second Break

Syncopation City

Here, we're putting the syncopation exercise to work. What a start to a break, right? Talk about an attention grabber. In measure two, the timing remains the same, but we are sliding up one fret each time we play the 4th string. It's so cool! The anticipation it builds is amazing, and creates such an awesome relief when it goes back in to the familiar solo.
