Short rhythm demonstration for a beginner?

I too have made a sample concerning various meters, using simple instrumentation to highlight the key differences between time signatures.

I hope it sheds a little light on the topic.

meter-tweater
Yeah, sure. Right. Whatever.

Annoying that my links don't work.

I listened to the "jumper" mod, and I didn't recognize any swing or shuffle rhythms. It all sounded very... straight forward.

I've listened to meter-tweater several times now. Great examples. Great that you included the name of the rhythms too.

This has turned into a very interesting thread. I hope there'll come more mod examples.

You are totally right Matt!
I just wanted to post a very simple approach to highlight the difference(s) between shuffle and swing.

Nice examples though! This just shows how you can variate styles.

Cheers!

cdnalsi - Hint: write in a text editor - ie. Notepad - and save as you write. Especially if you write many paragraphs.

Try my links again, but make sure you RIGHT-CLICK and chooses "SAVE LINK AS..." (it works when I try):

http://apple-joe.tripod.com/modes.zip

The 'rhythms' demo is probably most relevant.

Yea Joe, I know what you mean, but my computer doesn't crash very often, and today it crashed because of a power surge, which had like 3-4 phazes. (frikkin idiots). But yeah, you're right.
But I still cannot download the files, (Tripod sucks) and when I try to save as... I only get the "remote.html".
Send me the files: cdnalsi[dot]music[at]gmail[dot]com
And if you want I can host them for you.

Cheers!

Nothing would be more interesting than even more examples.
