Yes Elle, I see what you mean - she has a hard time not tapping - stomping in fact. Her playing style is very percussive. For those who haven't seen her play, take a look at this video;

Actually I think that Rodrigo & Gabriella are one of the most exciting duos I've seen in a long time.

Guitars - Ovation Celebrity, Revelation RJT60Q.
Amplifiers -Marshall G30R CD, Fender Super Champ 25 SE, Laney A Fresco.

Hi,

When I am tapping my foot to the rhythm should I just tap to four beats, or should I include the offbeat too? like, 1(tap), 2(tap), 3(tap) and(tap) 4(tap).

You should only tap on the beat, so for 4 beats to the bar, your foot should be tapping 4 times per bar regardless of the strumming pattern.

Hello DavidP,

I'm sorry I missed your answer, is there a way to set things so that I get notifications in my email?  I've tried looking for such a setting but it didn't jump out at me.

In the meantime, I have been practicing, and did stumble across the tapping of the heel alternative.  That is working better for me, things are improving.  Then I got to IM-125 and pattern #27, and it all fell apart again.  It is fun to play as fast as I can with the emphasis as marked, but I have to slow it down to agonizing to be able to tap on the beat.  More practice no doubt, my neural wiring is pretty strongly accent+heel tap right now.

Hello guys,
I have a problem with all the counting... It gets really hard to count "1-and-2-and-3-and-4-and" when the bpm gets really high, do I just work my counting up to speed or is it just for developing the feeling of that rhytm?

Counting is simply a learning mechanism to get you to hear rhythm. It's not really usable at high BPM, the assumption is by the time you're strumming that quickly, you're not counting beats anymore.
