All right. We're ready to jam. So here's our version of We Are.

0:00:120:00:16

# We are meant to be strong

0:00:400:00:43

# It's what we've always been told

0:00:430:00:46

# We've got to hold our head high

0:00:460:00:50

# And we go on, we go on, we go

0:00:500:00:53

# But as the days change

0:00:530:00:56

# We all got to be our brightest

0:00:560:00:59

# Cannot stay the same

0:00:590:01:03

# We are, we are, we are The stars above

0:01:030:01:06

# We can, we can, we can light the sky

0:01:060:01:09

# We all, we all, we all have the spark inside

0:01:090:01:13

# So let it all out

0:01:130:01:17

# We'll rise up from the ashes

0:01:170:01:20

# A thousand times

0:01:200:01:23

# To reach the way back home

0:01:230:01:27

# There's a price that we pay

0:01:330:01:36

# If our dreams are forgotten

0:01:360:01:40

# But I can't close these eyes

0:01:400:01:43

# Now I know, now I know, now I know

0:01:430:01:46

# But as the days change

0:01:460:01:49

# We all got to be our brightest

0:01:490:01:53

# Cannot stay the same

0:01:530:01:57

# We are, we are, we are the stars above

0:01:570:02:00

# We can, we can, we can light the sky

0:02:000:02:04

# We all, we all, we all have the spark inside

0:02:040:02:07

# So let it all out

0:02:070:02:10

# We'll rise up from the ashes

0:02:100:02:14

# A thousand times

0:02:140:02:17

# To lead the way back home. #

0:02:170:02:21

-Hello.

-Hey, guys.

0:02:300:02:32

We are here today and we are going to talk about We Are and...

0:02:320:02:36

We're going to talk about rhythms and tempo

0:02:360:02:39

and just how to stay in the pocket or in the groove.

0:02:390:02:42

One key thing for rhythm

0:02:420:02:44

is picking a tempo that fits your song -

0:02:440:02:48

and most songs are, in pop music, anyway, are in four-four time.

0:02:480:02:53

So we're in counts of four.

0:02:530:02:54

So it's one, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.

0:02:540:02:59

-For this tempo, anyway.

-Yeah.

0:02:590:03:00

And you want to make sure to stay in that steady one, two, three, four,

0:03:000:03:05

because it's important to not speed up or slow down at all.

0:03:050:03:08

If you have a metronome at home,

0:03:080:03:10

that's something that can really help you

0:03:100:03:12

-with staying in that steady tempo.

-Totally.

0:03:120:03:14

Another thing that helps me is relaxing my shoulders

0:03:140:03:16

and just making sure I'm not nervous.

0:03:160:03:19

Because that usually adds to speeding up.

0:03:190:03:23

I know it is way harder to say don't be nervous to yourself

0:03:230:03:26

-than actually not being nervous, but it takes practice.

-Mm-hm.

0:03:260:03:30

Yeah, practice is important

0:03:300:03:31

because when you're playing with other people,

0:03:310:03:33

sometimes they'll be playing different rhythms

0:03:330:03:35

than you are, so it's important to really practice your rhythms

0:03:350:03:38

and get them down that way.

0:03:380:03:39

It's not as easy to be distracted by what other people are doing.

0:03:390:03:42

Totally. Totally.

0:03:420:03:44

-So, let's play with the guitar here.

-All right.

0:03:440:03:47

Show the people how it's done.

0:03:470:03:49

I'm going to add some shaker

0:03:530:03:54

and just sort of try to match the rhythm that he's doing.

0:03:540:03:57

One, two, three, four. One, two, three, four.

0:04:030:04:07

One, two, three, four.

0:04:070:04:09

One, two, three, four.

0:04:090:04:11

Nice.

0:04:170:04:19

So, in the song We Are, when we were jamming it out earlier,

0:04:190:04:22

we kind of just started the song just based off of a rhythm.

0:04:220:04:25

Mm-hm. And it's a good way to switch up songs.

0:04:250:04:28

If you're doing a cover of something,

0:04:280:04:29

-a cool way to mess around with it is switch up the rhythm.

-Mm-hm.

0:04:290:04:33

-Thanks for listening.

-Thanks for listening. See you guys later.

0:04:330:04:36

Peace.
