MUSIC THEORY – Swing Rhythm Explained

In this tutorial made by Walk That Bass, you are going to learn the difference between a straight rhythm and a swing rhythm. Most music can be played either way, and will sound like the same piece, but with a very different feel.

Straight timing is where the beat is split into equal subdivisions (a ratio of 1:1) for playing notes.  Swing timing is where the beat is split into two-third plus one-third subdivisions (a ratio of 2:1).


One of the the clearest definition of this concept that i have ever seen 🙂
