Now we play some of these same patterns, and some new ones, in four-four tuplets, that is, with four main beats in the bar, each divided into three.
Making a total of twelve mini-beats to the bar.
We count our bar of twelve beats so:
"One-and-a two-and-a three-and-a four-and-a..."
As before, any beats which don't have a note, don't get counted.
The patterns could equally well be written in twelve-eight, and counted just the same.
