    I am working on getting push chord down (they show up as a tie in music notation), but how I have been looking at them as say on a 8th note or 16th making the change on the ‘and’ of 4 or in 16ths the and or the ‘uh’ (but last strum of the measure before the new chord. I have heard Laurence Juber discuss then like there are many ways to do these pushes. Is there a jazz or well versed person out there that can help

    Thanks

    Sean

    Since I can seem to add/edit I will reply to my own post. To. Clarify my post, The last beat of a measure if its a measure of 8th notes I have been adding an extra 16th note extra strum where I make the change, essentially say dotting the final 8th note to add in the final strum as a 16th as the chord change to make the change pushed into the measure before the measure with the new chord...

    Anyway that’s the premise

    You need to have this moved to the appropriate forum. You'll get better responses.

    If I understand your question, this is really a rhythm exercise in which you land a chord on the final 16th of the measure instead of the following downbeat. Here's an idea:
    1. Start by practicing simple chord changes ON the beat with a metronome clicking on the beat.
    2. Same progression/placement of chords, but with the metronome on the fourth 16th of each beat. FYI: this is difficult. It will make you very aware of the inside of the beat. Then try pushing one of those chords a 16th early without losing the beat.

    If you are strumming be consistent with your downs and ups, so your downstrokes happen at the strong 8th note level and the upstrokes happen with the off 16ths.

    Yes it is a rhythm exercise. Thanks for having the insight to recognize that as my post lacked that. Thank you for your reply. that is how I mostly understand them, and your practice tip is excellent, thank you
    They show up as ties in notation
