A New Perspective - Modern Drummer Magazine

A New Perspective

The four-over-three polyrhythm comprises four equally spaced notes and three equally spaced notes played simultaneously. We can build one by using a subdivision that both sides of the rhythm can fit within evenly. A measure of 16th notes in 3/4 gives us twelve notes that are evenly divisible by both four and three. By playing quarter notes, we get the three side of the polyrhythm. The four side is created by accenting every third 16th note.
