How to Play Swing 16ths

Hey everyone – Today I’m continuing to share thoughts via video on different topics that have to do with worship ministry. This video has a topic that might seem to serve a pretty narrow audience but this is definitely something that makes a big difference to your groove, something I have noticed a lot of younger worship leaders could benefit from —how to play swing 16ths!

  • I talk through a quick explanation of what “swing” is
  • What swing 8ths are and the the feel created from them
  • What swing 16ths are, several examples, and how to practice them

[Sorry – I streamed live and seems like my internet connection wasn’t great but the sound is ok after a min or two so you definitely get the idea!]
