Default See how well your rhythm is!

Saw this online and thought it was really neat. You hit the space bar to a specific beat and it slowly fades away, leaving you all on your own to keep the beat steady. At the end, it calculated how well you did and scores you from 0-1000.

I ended up with an 857.

818 here and I was consistently late, thought it would be the opposite.

I couldn't get the page to load, but I'm pretty certain I would have done poorly. I can play in the pocket, but I can't be relied on to make the pocket.

I tried this several times. When I thought about keeping perfect rhythm, I did poor (low 700s, I think). When I put it in the context of a song in my head, my score jumped up to high 800s.

I tried a few things and found it fun to play with

I got a 747 on my first try, I tried to not watch the screen too much.

Next try I did not tap my foot and didn't watch the screen - I just tapped my finger and got a 472

Then I watched the screen and tapped my foot and I got a 842

Did again and got 815.

Then 815 exactly, again.



So, I am about a low-mid 800's range

If I don't tap my foot, I stink.

I am sort of rhythmically challenged so I will look forward to doing this tonight when I get home from work. Thanks for posting!

Best,
Jayne

Neat!

I just gave it a whirl and I did better than I thought I would.

First attempt I scored a 834

That was using my left hand and I was curious to see if switching to my right hand would net a better score. I scored an 874 on that run.

I'll have to try again later when I have a block of time and see if that trend holds true over multiple tests.

737 at first and then mid-high 800s repeatedly. FAR better than I expected from me.

916 ... !

I've always had great rhythm, but I still cannot dance. Go figure.
