Shows Bounce Metronome from http://bouncemetronome.com Inspired by an idea from African drumming - played so that the rhythms meet each other in all possible ways

So, instead of playing a straight 5:3 always the 5 beat part exactly meets the 3 beat part at the measure beat, you can play the 5 and 3 so they meet each other at other positions in the measure. This rhythm has all the possible positions for the 5s and 3s that you get when you do this sort of thing, all played simultaneously.

To make this rhythm I set all the parts to play 15 beats to the measure - and then simply skipped the beats that needed to be skipped to make this rhythm. You could alternatively enter it as music notation for all the parts using the Drum & Dance rhythm editor. But this skipping beats method is probably easier to use..

Will be doing more rhythms like this
