 Author's note

If you have already learned rhythmic templates T to Z and are revisiting this page, you will realise that it is possible to count and play these highly syncopated six-eight patterns as four-four tuplets - a cross-rhythm feature to explore at your leisure.


    Exercise HCV-Q

The right hand plays HCV-N: "One two-and-(three)-and-one, two-and-(three)-and".

The left hand plays our 'mixer' pattern HCV-H: "One, (two)-and-three-and-one, (two)-and three-and".
