You responded to that argument by going to your retarded arguments about how rhythm is in yody resur head bullshit. Wow. what happened to the definition of beat that YOU posted. I already responded to that bullshit, infact you responded to that bullshit reasoning yourself by posting the Websters definition of what beat is. That definition eliminates that whole line of reasoning, and YOU posted it. Aint it funny how in your quest to back up your arguments by using externall sources your whole argument falls apart? That is hilarious. You cannot even go back to the definition you posted because it proves you are wrong. Now you are going back to some garbage reasoning that makes no sense. Wrong. Without a beat (measurement) you cannot do anything in rythm. If you wanted to play a musical piece on a piano, guess what, the sheet music has a time signature. That time signature is the beat measurement and dictates how to rythmically play the piece. Just as if you wanted to sew a dress you would need length (measurements) to tell you its dimensions. I have said a million times that the beat tells you the nature of the rythm, 4/4 beat measurement tells you the rythm is in 4/4 beats, 2/2 beat measurement tells you the rythm (and the rythm can be ANYTHING, a piano, a violin, a fucking saxaphone or hiphop instrumental, it can even be moving boxes, YES I CAN MOVE BOXES IN 4/4). Without beat measurements you would not be able to do anything with a rythm. With improv instrumental playing you need a beat measurement that you follow to play with a rythm. You can improvise a saxaphone piece using 2/2 beat measurements, or 4/4 beat measurements, or 6/8 etc. WHatever you want. The beat measurement tells you what the rythm will be. Stop right there. See your illeteracy creeping in again. You freestyle verses. Playing instrumental music on the spot is called improv (improvisation). Fucking moron. "Freestyle with an instrument" lmao. Your sphere of understanding music lays in the shallow realm of hiphop music. You suck muthafucka, you whole limited understanding of music as an artform comes from hiphop, one of the most rigid musical forms on earth (certain tempo ranges, beat always 4/4, etc). Go read some musical theory idiot. This just shows me you either have never played a real instrument in your life or you lacked any musical training. Clasically trained musicians do not create a rhythm in their head and then play the musical piece you moron. They look at the sheet music, they see what the beat measurement is and play it. This is how every rendition of Fur Elise for example sounds the exact same, if they did what you said then every rendition of Fur Elise would sound different idiot. No piano player or Orchestral musician plays a piece with the rythm in their head, they go with the beat measurement of the piece that is on paper. Again, when hiphop is your only musical avenue you get a very illeterate view on musical terms and concepts. I do not blame you. Go get some sheet music, and take some classes on how to create music with instruments, not sampling them from beat machines and digital synthesizers. It will teach you alot. Idiot.
