The 7/11 Challenge...



Alright gang. Let’s all musically band together and post Adam Neely (awesome bassist, composer, and YouTuber) some 7/11 polyrhythm memes. The binary looks like this

Snap with your left hand at the beginning of each column and with your right on every 1 while keeping time with all the 0s.


1000000

0000100

0000000

0100000

0000010

0000000

0010000

0000001

0000000

0001000

0000000


Or...Snap with your left hand at the beginning of each column while saying 1234567 over and over in time while snapping your right hand on each X.


X234567

1234X67

1234567

1X34567

12345X7

1234567

12X4567

123456X

1234567

123X567

1234567


I like to group the feeling so that each grouping of 7 feels like 2+2+2+1. It sounds like a record skipping one, two, three, fo, one, two, three, fo and so on...
