A New Way To Visualize Rhythm #MusicMonday

via Bobby Owsinski

If you’re not a drummer or percussionist, thinking about a rhythm, especially a complex one, can easily result in your brain boiling over while trying to understand it. This TED-Ed video by John Varney provides a new way of looking at different rhythms that makes the pursuit much easier and enjoyable.
