A. Opinion: Perhaps the section "Notation of regular rhythms" would be better organised as follows:

1. Define "regular rhythm" and "metre" ["meter" for Americans].

2. Define "measure" or "bar".

3. Define "time signature", with examples.

4. State that there are several different notation systems for rhythms and metres. They include:

a) Clave notation, marking accented pulses. Give an example in Clave notation. Explain the symbols used. E.g. 4/4, d16 : X . . X . . X . X . . . X . . . ||

b) Standard notation, based on classical musical staff notation, given in text symbols. Give the same example in Standard notation. Explain the symbols used. E.g. 4/4 [/././|O|O]:

c) Numeric notation, giving pulse counts per bar. (Need to relate Divisions to Pulse - maybe in previous section?) Give the same example in Numeric notation. Explain the symbols used. E.g. 4/4, d16 | 3 3 2 4 4 |:

5. Define "polyrhythms". (Optional: State that they can be notated with JI ratios. Or defer this to the Polyrhythms tutorial page.)

B. Question: Should the explanation of Standard notation read instead:

" | represents a bar line; O represents a whole note; o represents a half note;

/ represents a quarter note; // represents an eighth note; /// 16th; //// 32nd; ///// 64th and so on"?
