And that’s the basic premise to playing this modulation. It’s also important to be able to play it in 2 or 4 measure phrases. Try playing 2 measures of straight time and then two measures of the modulation. Or 4 measures of straight time and 4 measures of the
modulation (the three measures and the first repeated). Next, let’s try it with another shuffle pattern.
And here is the modulation.
Now, if we shift these from 8th note triplets to 16th notes, the modulation will feel faster. Here is the second shuffle modulated to 16ths.
Use these modulations when appropriate. Try this with other shuffle rhythms as well. Have fun.
