The metronome includes both preset and custom polyrhythms and BPM (Beats Per Minute) settings and will be an important tool for any drummer interested in improving their polyrhythmic abilities.
(YourDigitalWall Editorial):- New York City, New York Dec 18, 2022 (Issuewire.com) – In addition to their online metronome for drummers AboutDrumming.com have just released a free online polyrhythmic metronome.
Drummers can use this metronome to practice their polyrhythms, increase independence between their limbs, and help internalize complex rhythms. The metronome can also be used to fine-tune a drummer’s sense of time and aid in generating creative ideas for drum beats, fills, or songs in general.
The metronome includes multiple presets, including popular polyrhythms such as 3 against 2, 4 against 3, and 5 again 4, however, you are not limited to those presets and are free to input any 2 rhythms you wish to practice. The speed can also be increased or decreased by changing the BPM (Beats Per Minute) setting higher or lower.
Daniel W., who runs AboutDrumming.com, had this to say about the new free tool:
“Ever since I started playing the drums approximately 20 years ago I’ve been fascinated by polyrhythms. I’ve always been drawn towards them as a way of increasing my independence and coming up with new ideas for awesome (and unexpected) beats and fills. I also enjoy the technical challenge that comes with trying to learn these beats.
Originally I would count out the beats slowly and learn where to place each hit. I had no way of playing these rhythms to a metronome however since my physical metronome could only play one rhythm at a time.
That’s why I’m very excited to be releasing this metronome – it’s going to make it easier for other drummers to explore these wonderful rhythms and to make sure they’re playing on time which can be quite difficult to test when you’re only counting in your head”.
When asked Daniel stated that this is not the last free tool AboutDrumming.com will be building for drummers and that there are more ideas in the pipeline that will help drummers practice more effectively.
