Rhythm of common sentences - learning tool.

Post by Reg_B on Wed Aug 25, 2010 5:03 pm

I have searched for about an hour and a half, got sidetracked on SO MANY interesting threads, but now it is time to ask for help.

SOMEWHERE there is a list of a dozen or two common phrases / sentences / sayings that illustrate MOST rhythmic patterns.
The list I saw works only in English (& some dialects, e.g. Canadian English, American, Awwstraylian, etc.).

I thought I saw it here a few months ago.

Come to think of it, some of them might have been song titles.

HELP !!! requested and GREATLY appreciated (-:

These are the some rhythm related topics I could find:

Piano Rhythm Techniques
http://afpa.hooxs.com/piano-or-keyboard-tech-discussion-f22/piano-rhythm-techniques-t1675.htm?highlight=rhythm+patterns

Improve your motor, improve your rhythm.
http://afpa.hooxs.com/how-should-we-practise-f15/improve-your-motor-improve-your-rhythm-t571.htm?highlight=rhythm+patterns

This has a funny video of the Muppets. Razz
I (Don't) Got Rhythm... + Danny Boy (Bonus Track)
http://afpa.hooxs.com/talk-about-anything-f10/i-don-t-got-rhythm-danny-boy-bonus-track-t301.htm?highlight=rhythm+patterns


But I do think that first topic is the one you were actually looking for.

Thanks Kelly,
I have read those already, but I do appreciate your digging them up for me.

The article I am thinking of uses lines of poetry, or well known speeches, e.g. "I have a Dream" or "I wandered lonely as a cloud".
As examples of the rhythmic count/beat of speech, where the main beat is in each sentence, etc.

I'm not saying that either of those two are actual ones used, just that the article uses similar well known sentences.

Maybe I will remember an ACTUAL one and do a google search on it with the word "rhythm" added.

thanks again,

\R

I think those posts are pretty nice, I wouldn't have gone through them if I hadn't read your topic, so I appreciate that.

I tried googling it myself, but I wasn't quite sure what you were looking for, but if I bump into something rhythm-like I'm let you know.

This IS fun.
I googled;
rhythm of "I wandered lonely as a cloud"
on the off chance that it might have been one of the poetry lines.

I got ALL SORTS of interesting analysis - English Language (TECHNICAL grammar, etc.) and some bolding of the typeface of the syllables with the beat.
Not quite what I was looking for, but interesting.

Different results with;
rhythm of "I have a Dream"
a lot of civil rights links, which I expected, some beat/rhythm stuff.

This is the sort of thing that will come to me from WAY out in the blue in a few days when I am trying to focus on something else.
An ACTUAL line from the article will pop into my head, or I will be noodling around on the keyboard trying to chicken pick something out (-:
