Hi Guys Im new to piano and I love jazz so muchhhhh.
I was learning the basic of basics of the song, The Girl From Ipanema. I bought the sheet from Antoine Hervé along with the tutorials and tips.
One thing im struggling with is syncopation of my hands. I practiced both hands separated and my rhythm was fine. Everything that should be on the off beat is off beat and vice versa.
However when i put both hands together it just falls apart :(. I tried many times till i just wanna cry. I duno why it is not working.
Am i doing it wrong? Should i practice both hands together as one? Or separately? Because i've been thinking if i prac both hands together, i will not be able to keep my rhythm on my LH and when it comes to improv :( it will fall apart again. :( Am i doing it wrong? Please give me some tips :(
