That's really cute poly-rhythms Joe, I basically feel a 9/8 thing.. with some nicely varying accents.

Yeah there's the this over that thing (so I hear patterns of (repeats of four) 8th notes on the toms, sounding like 1234, 1234, 1234 etc..), so yes, 12 is there too.. just that it feels to me (especially in the first soundfile) like the underlying cycle repeats after 9 rather than 12 8th notes.

But I'm curious what music theory guys say. I'm not a confident music-theorist at this point.

If I told you everybody would be doing it, and you can say sayonara to your individuality.

Actually I don't care:

Threesome: 8th notes in 9/8, hitting the tom on the 1&A and 3. In the middle it shifts to the 2 and 3&A. Downbeat plus end of the "triplet" of the following beat, whatever beat you want to count it on. In the third quarter it goes into 12/8 and you're playing a four note pattern, then it goes back to the first thing at the end.

Again 3s: four note pattern in 12/8

What's the sticking, just alternating, partial rim clicks w/ the left hand?

Those Greeks will have your n*ts.

Here are a couple of my things that happened on their own-- an 11 note pattern, and a 3:2 pattern.

when it's off the floor tom it's "right hand" led motion.
when Small tom- it's Left
when Floor tom- it's Right
in-between is hail if I know
It's one my very few "just feel don't think" acts
(might be the only one)
No I have others. That are incomprehensible- but repeatable- over and over..
So (evidently..) some part of me knows what I'm doing But I couldn't tell ya
(but this is the one that sounds least ..like a mistake..an error.)
but I'll work that out too

It's in 3? You're a man after my own heart, though. Gregg Keplinger was playing this for everyone who ventured into is shop at one point:

it's in whatever my hi hat tells me it is;
that Keplinger sounds familiar
he hasn't quite the ostinato but 1 little chick and a couple towards end

Very cute

That's me playing, Keplinger just liked it.

Camille Bigeault. She's a phenomenal drummer and I study her polymeter videos when I'm feeling mentally sharp enough to soak it in.



Very nice!
Yeah, that's her.

I think this is what Joe was getting at but I'm not sure sometimes.

I can soak it in also but it gets to the point where I feel like I'm being waterboarded. :p
