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"?
