Jason Zac uses Beethoven’s timeless classic, Ode to Joy to practice various rhythm patterns that are taught on the Piano but can be applied to other instruments like the Guitar, Banjo, and more. This lesson focuses on rhythm techniques using subdivisions, time feels, rhythmic devices, and polyrhythms. In addition to all of the grooving topics, Jason has also arranged the song with two versions. Beginner and Advanced.
