Questions for you guys: I know that beats 1 and 3 are the strongest and that chord tones are usually placed on those beats but: 1. What about beats 2 and 4? What's good to use for those? 2. How about the "ees ands and uhs"? What is used for the offbeats? 3. Are chord tones ever used off the beats? In regards to chord changes: 1. Are there ever more than 2 chord changes per bar? 2. Do they always occur on beats 1 and 3? (I'm thinking of Gerswin's "I Got Rhythm") 3. Can chord changes happen off the beat? ( on an "and" or "e") Thanks guys.
