Swinging the Eighth Notes

In this lesson I'm going to introduce you to a really fun rhythmic concept that we briefly touched upon at the end of level 1. This is the concept of "swung" subdivisions, and it can be applied to both 8th and 16th notes.

In this lesson I'm going to show you how it applies to 8th notes, and in order to keep our focus on the new rhythmic feel we'll reuse the 8th note based strumming pattern you learned in level 1 and just adapt it to work with the swung 8th notes.
