The most common eight note and sixteenth note rhythms. I go through the same rhythm with the written notes, with the counting at 100 beats per second, and slowed down at 70 beats per second. I used a fantom x8 to create most of the sounds and then played them through a line 6 podxt to add some effects. I programmed all the drums right in my sequencer software (sonar 3!) The visuals were created with Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0. (Except the note images which were exported from Finale. This exercise is a suppliment to the exercises for my book “How to Read Musical Rhythm Like a Genius”. Check out for more info.
