  • Shuffle? Foxtrot? Beatboxing help.

    Save me from having to beatbox.  What do you call the kick-kick-snare+guitar 6/8 rhythm in the verse here?

    Cool. That's what I call it.

    “Good Vibrations” was probably a good record but who's to know? You had to play it about 90 bloody times to even hear what they were singing about. What’s next? Rock opera? —Pete Townshend, Melody Maker Interview, 1966.

      Accurate but not helping.

      There's got a be a vocabulary for this kind of stuff that I just don't know about. I was talking with a guitarist and describing this rhythm:

      kick-snare-kick-kick-snare

      and he says "oh, the Ringo beat". And I thought, yeah, Ringo frequently plays that pattern, sure.  Then later, at a different session I told a drummer that I wanted "the Ringo beat" and she was like "what are you talking about?"

    I am very tempted to accept this as solution.

      Is that the Last Dance w/ Mary Jane beat? I don't understand the question--why do you need it named?

        Yes, it is also the Last Dance w/Mary Jane beat. I was hoping to raise my rhythm vocabulary above the level of grunts and pointing, but I suppose I should consider the audience.
