7/4 12 key Amazing Grace practice workout

Playing in Odd time Signatures like 7/4 is a great fun way to practice and strengthen rhythmic understanding.

Command of Rhythm and Rhythmic variety is key to sounding competent as an improvisor. 

A stunning  technique is useless if you cannot play in time.

1) 7/4 time, sometimes alternating groups of 223 and  332, which keeps the player on their toes!
