Rhythm concepts for intermediate producers

If you’re not a percussionist, you might find it challenging to add rhythmic interest to your drums and synth riffs. Let’s look at 3 simple rhythm concepts that can get you started!

We cover:
1) Dotted patterns
2) Euclidian rhythms
3) Polymeters

And we apply these not only to the note position of rhythmic riffs, but also to the ACCENT within those riffs.
