I love the book. Do you have any tips in regards to playing rhythm at faster tempos? (tempos around 250 and beyond)
I can understand upstrokes at medium and up swing tempos, but for faster tempos it seems impossible for me to add. Are upstrokes thrown out when playing faster? Perhaps it's just my ears, but it seems the upstrokes are either minimal or nonexistent in the faster Gypsy Project recordings (Festival 48, Babik, Swing 42, and so forth)
It seems the faster a tune, the motion of the right hand playing rhythm must become quite minimal to accomplish a quicker swing, right? Yet personally there is a point where I must omit the upstroke of gypsy rhythm playing to just do downstrokes at a faster tempo, am I just cheating or is this what g-rhythm players do?
