I never fully understood and I didn’t know where to place this topic. December 18, 2016 at 12:32 AM #1319502 Devon Guinn ParticipantReplies: 1Has thanked: 1 timeBeen thanked: 0 times Hey! Thanks for your question. For anyone else reading, here is the main post. For background, we use the “1 E & A” counting system. More info on that can be found here. Basically, we write each sound you are supposed to beatbox above each subdivision of the beat. For instance: B t K t t K t 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 In that example, you are beatboxing a sound on each beat except the “1” that doesn’t have a corresponding sound above it. Here is the same beat, but written on subdivisions of beats 1 and 2. This is the same beat as above, just four times as fast: B t K t t K t 1 E & A 2 E & A If it helps, “E, &,” and “A” are just subdivisions of each number beat (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) It’s kind of hard to explain on here, so I can make a tutorial video if you like. Does this help? What part of the system are you confused by? Is it the “E & A” stuff, or something else?” December 18, 2016 at 4:06 PM #1319523 Grammar Nazi ParticipantReplies: 5Has thanked: 0 timesBeen thanked: 2 times Alright. That makes more sense, thanks.
