Hello;

I'm currently jamming tons of DT and I have a problem with a rhythmic pattern I came up with just now. It goes:

| |-| |-|
-x--x-x--x-x- x4 (This is a simple 4/4)

|--|--|
-x-x-x- x3 (a 3/4)

| |-| | |-| | |-|
-x--x-x--x--x-x--x--x-x (now this is a 3/4th again, but here is my problem)

I'm having a hard time explaining this rhythm pattern to people that I play with. Would this be a 4/4+3/4x2 or a 4/4+6/8?
I know that 3/4 and 6/8 are the same but it's just about the groove and the pattern that repeats. After the first 4/4, would the second patter better come off as a triplet in 4/4th repeated 4 times and then changing to the 3/4?

Is there any certain name for the rhythmic change but consistency in the rhythmic pattern?

uhm, could always be 15/8 in one measure (1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + + 5 + + 6 + +)

or 3/4+9/8

however you want to put it

unless i'm reading it wrong, it seems pretty simple

Sure, I understood that I didn't phrase it any good after reading through it..
I'll record it later today or tomorrow and will update my post.

Thanks in advance.
