brain gym two
 
here's another one even harder than the other one. give her a go and see if drumming has given you coordination. I adapted this one from an exsisting one i used as a school teacher. its harder this way.

You're going to be the death of me....

This one is a little bit easier but still pretty tricky.

i kept getting a lopsided square. i had to shoot this video about 8 times before i was happy enough with the result. you should see what a class of 11 year olds looks like trying to do this one.

Me thinks its time to work on the Bonzai plants again.
I imagine Thomas Lang would have no problem with this one.

OK, it's official. You are about eight thousand times more coordinated than I am.

very cool.

I remember seeing something online with a really really tricky one i was unable to do.

This is not it, but it was something where you move one foot clockwise, and one hand counter clockwise or somthing. It was impossible for me.

Excellent!! I managed to do it first time. How do you come up with these things

i was a school teacher. we fill our little heads with this stuff.

class A, that one you're talking about is to draw clockwise circles with your toe while drawing a number 6 with youe hand

Very nice. The first one got me for a while. I kept getting a thumb and two pinkies. I've heard the second one before, so I could do that off the bat.

Similar to that: point your index fingers towards each other a couple inches apart. Now have one make circles towards you, and the other make circles away from you. Be careful, remember for the two fingers to be going opposite directions they have to cross paths twice each time.

As soon as I saw this I thought of the polyrhtyhm 3:4

NUTHA JASON 01-05-2008 03:11 PM

Re: brain gym two
 
hauk - that circles one is cool. mine quickly turn into squew ovals.

gusty - yeah. it's like this one was made for drummers. my guess is that vinnie would have no problem drawing octagons with his right hand, triangles with his left squares with his right toe and spirals with his left toe.

Yeah, I thought of that as well.

That being said, if you draw 3 squares and 4 triangles you would end at the same time.

I think I need holographic autocad ;-)

Peace!

gusty 01-06-2008 06:29 AM

Re: brain gym two
 
Actually...no, wait, its more like accenting 3 against 4 than a 3:4 polyrhythm.

So yeah, accenting 3 with your left hand and 4 with your right.

Which if you take the subdivisions out, you do get your 3:4.

I found this really easy for some reason, i also found the foot with the six quite easy too. Spose that means I'm deficient in some area of my life.

Oh yeah...haha.

This one was pretty easy, the only trouble i have is getting perfect triangles/squares. It took about 10 mins practise to get the foot with the 6 one.
