"Music Simulations Software Designer shares secrets of algorithmic rhythm improvisation with musicians!"

Musicians learn to tap complex rhythm patterns by using music improvisation algorithms in the form of puzzles.   Smiley Faces

Once you learn to tap a complex rhythm pattern with your hand you are able to strum it on the guitar or play it on the keyboards and drums.

Insight: Anytime we try to translate complex rhythm patterns onto an instrument we encounter challenges with the mechanics of executing every rhythm pulse effectively. As we try to reach for the next pitch or chord it can insert delays that throw our intended rhythm off balance. When we practice complex rhythm patterns by tapping the hand we build up natural muscle memory while avoiding the extra navigational efforts of having to target pitch or chords. This provides the benefit to more easily perform the rhythm pattern so that when we try to reproduce it on an instrument we have a clearer target in mind. Once a complex rhythm pattern is engraved into muscle memory it is easier to reach each pitch or chord on your selected instrument. In this way, tapping a complex rhythm pattern by hand can be a stepping stone to performing it on an instrument.

,, ... ?
Too much reliance on counting alone is just one of the many traps of beginning and intermediate rhythm students! QuantumPortal.Com provides advanced alternative techniques focused on rhythm patterns as rhythmic words and phrases within a larger musical 
language to take us beyond the basics of counting.

Abandon memorization of
lengthy note for note rhythm sequences by  replacing large sections of music with rhythm improvisation. Modern popular music, rock-n-roll, blues, country, and jazz all cry out for improvisation instead of brute force note for note memorization.

A concise Step by Step approach that links the most basic concepts up to the more complex rhythm pulse manipulations.

Here is an interesting video that provides very good insights into improvisation.  

"Your Brain On Improv"!
One main take away is ... to improvise we turn down our "self-monitoring"  mode and turn up our "expressive" and "language" modes. 

Rhythm is fluid. The starting point of rhythm is the individual rhythm pulse. Pulses can be aggregated to create complex Rhythm Patterns. 

The metronome is key to mastering complex rhythm patterns and rhythm algorithms provide a fresh perspective to visualize and improvise rhythm.
