## Video Resources

The bounce visuals which help so much with your metronome practise are also useful for video resources. It's often hard to find good video representations of rhythms, so perhaps these videos will help fill a gap.

If you want to use videos like these yourself, see Add videos like these to your own site.

The videos you can find here include:

### Simple Time like 4/4

2/4, 3/4, 4/4

### Compound Time like 6/8

6/8, 9/8, 12/8

### Odd Time Signatures like 5/4 and 7/4

Any time signature such as 5/4 and 7/4 which can't be divided evenly into 2s or 3s.

### Swing

### Polyrhythms

The normal polyrhythms like

4 : 3, 3 : 2 etc.

### Polyrhythms like 4/3 : 4/4

These polyrhythms have measures of different sizes. So the 4/4 and 4/3 both have four beats to a measure - but the 4/4 has four beats for every three beats of the 4/3.

### Polyrhythms like PI : 4

These have a fractional number of beats to the bar, say 2.2 beats to a measure - or even an "irrational" number like PI or the golden ratio. The beats drift in and out of phase with the bar line.

### Rhythm Patterns Played Polyrhythmically

Example - left hand plays a single paradiddle and right hand plays a double paradiddle, both played in the same time polyrhythmically

### Additive Rhythms

like 3 + 2 / 4 or 4 + 3 / 4 etc. Also the more complex rhythms of Balkan music such as 3 + 2 + 3 / 8 etc.

Also measures with different note values such as 4/4 + 7/8 or 2/4 + 3/8 etc

### Harmonic Polyrhythms

Here the idea is that each rhythm gets a pitch depending on the number of beats in the measure. The result is harmonious as it uses the harmonic series.

### Inharmonic Rhythms like Golden Ratio

Like the Harmonics metronome except that since the numbers are fractional or irrational, no longer uses harmonic series.

The golden ratio rhythms are especially interesting as they give you the most polyrhythmic rhythm you can possibly make - and with a musical interval as far as you can get from pure harmonies.

### Drum Rudiments

Basic rhythms used by Drummers, like a "vocabulary" of drumming.
