Cut Time with Quadruple Subdivided Rhythms: Lesson 11 Practice Patterns 1113-1118

The rhythm patterns on this page focus on eighth notes in cut time. Just as sixteenth notes form a quadruple subdivision of the beat in 2/4, 3/4, and 4/4 time signatures, eighth notes form a quadruple subdivision of the beat in cut time or the 2/2 time signature. Read the introduction to cut time for more detailed explanations of this time signature, and also visit the cut time practice suggestion page for ideas on improving your skills in this time signature.
