If you’re curious what polyrhythm sounds like you can skip to the example at 13:02.
I have been so scared to make this video- It’s a really hard topic to learn and teach, and there’s not much interest in the topic. HOWEVER I feel that polyrhythm is a fantasticly fun and productive concept to practice. In this video, we learn about what polyrhythm is, then learn about resultant and composite rhythms and how they can help us learn to perform a 3:4 polyrhythm.
We go way beyond just “passing the golden butter” in this video to explore the musical aspects of these rhythms and how we can apply them in real world scenarios, with a significant stress on how a polyrhythm can be interpreted two different ways with two different dominant beats.
If you like progressive rock, djent, math metal, indian music, or anything else that is hard to dance to, you’ll probably enjoy working with this concept. I wish you the best of luck with this one- it’s tough stuff!
