My music professor taught students a cool musical rhythm count-clapping system where "1 and 2 and" would rather be "1 te 2 te," and "1 e and a" would be "1 ta te ta," and I believe triplets were "1 ta te 2 ta te," though I'm not sure. Anybody know what this system is called, and what I would say for dotted 8th notes?
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 am not taking music theory classes anymore, it is good to see online documentation of this and exercises. Hope someone finds this system useful, I love it, and it needs to be spread!!!
