I've started to learn swing 8th rhythm and I think I understand the idea when it comes to pairs of 8th. But how to read the pairs of "dotted quarter + 8th".
I'm using the app to insert and play the rhythm and I noticed the following.
Let's say we are in 4/4 and bar contains 8th + dotted quarter + 8th + dotted quarter The rhythm sounds the same when I change from "straight 8th" to "swing 8th" mode.
But if I change the bar to dotted quarter + 8th + dotted quarter + 8th Now the rhythm sounds different when I change from "straight 8th" to "swing 8th" mode.
I expected rhythm to change in both bars (1 and 2). Why is the first case swing 8th = straight 8th, but in the second case the are not equal?
Any help will be appreciated, tnx.
EDIT: app is called Complete Rhythm Trainer (on Android).
