Without a picture, we can just guess, and my guess is that it is referring to a triplet. Something like this for instance: Τhe eighth triplets (second group,second bar) are 3 eighth notes that are being played in one beat; the quarter triplets (first group,second bar) are 3 quarter notes that are being played on two beats etc.

He is probably listening to a click track, which is a kind of sophisticated metronome. In concerts like this, most of the music is being played by live musicians, but some parts of the music you are hearing have been pre-recorded in a recording studio. With each piece of music, the drummer is listening to a rhythmic clicking sound which is synchronized to ...

There are a few ways to describe what is happening here. The most general is syncopation, which is emphasizing the rhythmically weak beats of a measure. It sounds to me like Taylor Swift is singing a 3+3+2 pattern, with the last note sustained over the barline. This type of rhythmic pattern is ubiquitous in popular music. This essay calls it "The World’s ...

Oops, I found it pretty quickly after I used the after using google quotes operator around "1 ta te ta" and found a link to the name, The Eastman Counting System. More details here The correct way to count triplets is "1 la li, 2 la li." And to count dotted 8th notes, you just count on the right syllables, here shown in bold: "1 ta te ta, 2 ta te ta" As I ...

I skimmed through your youtube video, and found a spot at about 1:07:08 or 1:07:09 that I think shows what you're talking about. We hear strings and piano, the drummer has some rests, nods his head with the beat and then comes in. In this case my guess is he isn't listening to a click track, because there is a conductor -- I saw the conductor at, for ...

6 | V ^ ^ v ^ ^ | 8 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 | 6/8 compound time can be thought of as duple meter consisting of two beats to the measure, where the dotted quarter note gets the beat. 6/8 is just a notational simplification -- if Carl Orff's time signatures had caught on we might call this time signature 2/q. (a two on top of a dotted quarter note). I consider an ...

Just a different sort of flashcard. Get some blank postcards and a black marker pen and in your best musical handwriting, notate a rhythmic pattern lasting one crotchet on each card. Each single card could contain for instance (a non-exhaustive list): crotchet quaver quaver crotchet rest dotted quaver semiquaver semiquaver semiquaver quaver rest Triplet ...

This had me wondering, there must be some way to do an analysis where the songs can generate some graph, and we can compare the graphs. Is my thought valid? Sure. You can graph the songs' pitches (Y-axis) over time (X-axis) to compare them. That's what a score is. A musical score is a peculiar sort of notation for graphing pitch over time for the ...
