Rhythmic Counting 20 - 6|8 & 12|8 Time Signatures

Learn counting and rhythm from globe-trotting percussionist Matt Teitelman (Kanye West). In this lesson, Matt examines the 6/8 (six-eight) time signature and the 12/8 (twelve-eight) time signature and explains the reasons for using an eighth note pulse versus a quarter note pulse. This lesson is just one of many music theory tutorials exploring the study of the language of music here at Music School Online (MSO).
