It would be 9/8. Each group of three eighths would be one pulse.
1&ah, 2&ah, 3&ah, 4&ah
Amusingly, almost every music "teacher" I've ever had, taught different syllables for counting various time signatures...but they all used "tri-pul-et" to teach triplets...except in compound meters like 6/8, 9/8 and 12/8, where they aren't really triplets, they're just pulse groupings that are functionally equivalent to triplets (of course, played as a 'shuffle' rhythm, so the first two notes of each group are tied).
I had a pilot offshore (I was the mechanic) who counted using "Ta-toe-ti-tuh", he was a keyboard player. My Viola instructor used the standard 1-e-&-ah, 2-e-&-ah. I didn't really understand counting rhythm until the Viola came along. Before that, I did rhythm by ear. Not good for sight-reading!
I think I use both the 1&ah, 2&ah and the 123, 223 counting methods equally....I'm not sure about using Ta-toe-ti-tuh...!! I like having the beat # included as part of the count....
Yard work today:
If you want some inspiration and a target that most of us will never reach, check this out. There's a thread on the Acoustic Guitar Forum where a bunch of us are posting our own Grateful Dead covers. Most of us are nothing to write home about, but we have fun. But every now and then a ringer shows up, like Steve here. He's incredible. A fine singer too...
Thanks for posting that, Ray. That will help me a lot.
I was doing the math an was trying to figure a polyrhythm that would some how allow 12/8 with a reggae feel my head exploded when I came around I was humming Penderecki
The two lower staves (sets of lines) are for piano accompaniment. The middle stave is for the right hand and the bottom stave is for the left hand.
For what it's worth, Food52 (food52.com) has a couple of Gullah recipes today. They're not the most dependable site, and I'm quite sure you don't need pink Himalyan salt to make Gullah rice, but if you're interested it's worth a look. Ranky Tanky forever.
(Suspicion-based) question: does an E diminished scale have the same notes as the F major scale?
A diminished scale (as known to me) alternates half and whole tones. The fingerings get kind of interesting.
Or then, is it a "mode" thing that the melody starts and stops on an E note?
Yeah, there are actually only three of them and they don't really have a key, but I would suppose that if someone said "an E diminished scale" they would mean E-F#-G-A etc.
