Seeing as how this is the designated forum for all topics related to Bass, an instrument which helps to compose and define the rhythm section of most musical genres, I thought it would be interesting to test the Rhythm (as well as, admittedly, memory as I cannot say that this test does not take memory into account) of my fellow bassists. Take the test, have fun, and post your scores.

Disclaimer: This is not at all the defining test of a persons musical/rhythmic ability, nor should it be considered in such a way. This is not a competition (well, maybe a little ) and there should be neither flaming/insulting or bragging regarding scores. Also the "pics or it didn't happen" rule remains in full effect. Scores will not be accepted as true without a screen shot to back them up (use PRTSC "print screen" it is not hard).

So without further adieu, here is the Rhythm Test:

(Scroll down on page to reach test)

And here is my score (an 88%):
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

I got a miserable 64% on the rhythm test, and that's not worth posting a picture of. This, however, is:

I got 84%! I'm well chuffed...

This is really interesting for me as my dissertation is related to hearing, although more about cochlear physiology (the place where sound is picked up) rather than auditory processing such as this. Auditory neuroscience is bloody difficult!

But thanks Beast_Within... really cool idea.

I wouldnt be surprised if the first thing Varg did was sign up for WoW so he could kick some Judeo-Christian ass.
