Now let's play and count the beats. So in this case, we do have to be accurate with the rhythm, which means we should keep a nice steady beat. You can watch me first or you can join me 123123 1-231-231-2312 312-312-3123 repeat 123123 1-231-231-2312 3123123 pause when you're ready, and play and count the beats keeping a steady beat. Let's talk about keeping a steady beat. Imagine that you're listening to someone play music and you're really enjoying it. You're getting into it tapping your foot, maybe dancing a little bit.
It feels good, right? Chances are that this musician is keeping a steady peak, which allows you to tap your foot to their music, you can feel that the beats of the music happen at expected intervals, but if someone is playing music and hesitating in some sections, and rushing through others, it's not as much fun To listen to them play, it might make you a little bored or even anxious, trying to keep track of where they are in the song. So playing with the steady beat is really important, especially if you're going to play with other musicians. You all need to know where you are in the music. And you have to keep a steady beat in order to do that. So the sooner you train yourself to count, and play accurate rhythm and keep a steady beat, the better it is for you.
And that's why we've been playing and counting since the beginning of this course.
