Powell on PolyNome
I like using PolyNome to help me learn to hear complex rhythms accurately. PolyNome is like a personal rhythm coach that helps push me to new levels that I wouldn’t have reached on my own.

It’s so hard to hear the beat displacements properly in this Vinnie Colaiuta song. (I’m Tweeked/Attack of the 20 lb. Pizza) Thanks @joebergamini for transcribing it and showing us what he’s doing. I programmed the 8 bar pattern in @polynomeapp with voice counting. I still can’t play it with the track yet but it’s a start. Good luck! 😄😳😬#vinniecolaiuta #polynome #metronome #joebergamini #MDClassicTracks #powellrandolph #moderndrummermagazine #presonus #notionmusicnotationsoftware @dreamcymbals @vicfirth @modern_drummer
