Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Yeah...my idea for going through the beats was to hopefully widen the possible range out from the four beat.  This is something I've been writing about for a while, so I thought I'd go through up through the count, using examples to show how the standard rhythms (polka, waltz, etc...) are put together--and how they can be given a natural feel.   I suppose time signatures are ways of writing down various rhythmic forms, so the 6/8 exists--it could be written as two bars of 3/4 but that wouldn't imply the relative emphases--; and that's one type of shorthand.  Using the dance names--minuet, paso doble, buleria (I don't know the names!) is another way.  But I think you're thinking of something else.
