The video embedded in this article is about 4 minutes long and will show you my method for learning polyrhythms. It focuses on 3 against 2, but the method will work for any two rhythms that you would like to work on being able to play simultaneously.
Here’s the video:
Try this out and see if it works for you. Like I mention in the video, the key is to be able to hear the polyrhythm clearly using a device (like a Dr Beat) and then slow it down so much that working out the mechanics is very easy. If you do that, ANY polyrhythm you want to learn will be approachable.
Let me know what you think.
