Solfeg, you know that do, re, me, far, so, la, te, do, thing. (Remember Julie Andrews and The Sound of Music ?)
I think this could be a very useful technique, applicable to any instrument, voice or percussion. It can handle basic rhythms, odd time signatures and polyrhythms too. A great way to create a groove, and beyond.
So I thought I would share it here.
I am also interested to hear what you think, and what other techniques and methods you use to explore and internalise rhythms.
So please share them too.
The girl with a fast tongue.
A good demonstration of the technique in practice, and using the voice as a percussive instrument too.
