Default How good is your sense of rhythm?

How good are fellow FFRers' senses of rhythm?
Do you think playing FFR has improved your sense of rhythm?

Take the test here:

Personally scored 88%. I missed all the ones that a large majority got right, it seems. Probably tricked myself into thinking the rhythms were different when they were the same or something.

I like to think I have a decent sense of rhythm, though I'm not sure how one goes about analyzing that. I got an 84% on the test, and I think I tricked myself too.

The four I got wrong had 62,82,61,64% of people getting them right. I dont really know what to make of that!

I got tired half way through, so I started guessing and ended with a 84%

96% - I usually never get these tests wrong, but I think I screwed up on the one with the where the ending had snares on the off-beats instead of claps on the off-beats.


I also doubt 90+% is world-class: music majors should easily get 100% on these kinds of tests :/

Btw, where do you go to check the success rates?

92%

Number 13 and 23 were the two that I got wrong - I'm fairly certain that I could 100% this if I felt like really trying.

Got the one with 39% correctness wrong; the rest were all >55%

I tried not using replays but I think I would have scored in the 80s or higher with them

There are others who are perfect pitched, but have trouble identifying types of scales (various modes).

Personally, I'm quite strong with my ear, but I lack technical accuracy in my performance (hitting the correct notes). I'm strong with phrasing and stylistic performance. I am weaker in advanced chordal functions, and stronger in rhythmical, harmonic and melodic relationships.

Before I attended the university that I'm currently at, I also thought that music majors would surpass my expectations - that definitely wasn't the case. However, we are there because there are things we have an upper hand in, and that's what really counts - they aim to excel you in the fields you are good at. They do try to excel you in various other fields, such as rhythmic, harmonic and melodic (or even repertoire) dictations/excerpts, but like everything else, you'll find people in all parts of the spectrum.
Ah, I see. This has been very informative.
Just to prove your point, I referred this to my friend who is also a piano major (jazz piano / tenor sax double major) - absolutely sucked at this and got 68% lmao
Sometimes I wonder how my friend even got in knowing his highschool music grade were about average, but I guess he must have a certain trait that he excels in. Then again, my highschool senior jazz class was extremely difficult to score well on.

One of the hard tests went like this: the teacher would play an obscure inverted chord on the piano. Then, the teacher would say something like "2nd and 4th note", and the students would have to determine the interval between the 2nd and 4th note of that weird chord. The teacher would sometimes screw you over and play a chord with a bunch of minor 2nds or a bunch of tritones lmao

Edit: Yay, 500 posts
