    I'll typically get the syncopation by counting to the beat and getting that up feel. (e.g. If the note is on the And of 3, I'll count 1,2,3-AND, and play on the And.) Of course, subdividing the whole way should work great. Get used to syncopation by playing it with a metronome subdividing for you
