Rhythm for the foodies
#3
Thanks for this; I hadn't seen it before. As each language has its own consonant and vowel lengths, there are a plethora of equivalents to your foodie one, but one of the classic ones (possibly the oldest in existence?) is TAKADIMI - see http://takadimi.net/ In particular check out the short guide there (4th one down in the index on the LHS). Unlike 1-e-and-a 2-e-and-a etc. it can easily be used to breakdown complex timing bars involving demisemiquavers etc., and is also useful when different timings are played against each other, e.g. triplets against semiquavers.
Cheers, Eric
