This week, Cannon explains syncopation. This is how you break the rules of time to make your music more interesting. This is famous in progressive and funk music, but eminent in almost all styles.

This video focuses on applying syncopation in musical ways. In his original piece “Syncing Feelings,” Cannon examines many different rhythms, all explained and with tabs on screen. This is a very easy way to put things in perspective and also learn some cool rock and metal solo parts.
