Joe, First I need to qualify... I studied music in college, and while I don't currently make music on a regular basis I still know my theory. I have a question about this from your magic pill: I've been dancing lindy hop for more than a couple years now and I cut my teeth on 6 count patterns. Your numbers 1+2 3+4 5 6 match up with what I first learned but the rhythm you assign doesn't. If what you assert about eight and quarter notes is what you meant to say your rhythm is actually: one, two& three, four& five, six. That is a far cry from everyone I've ever seen teach and every video, including Frankie Manning's I've ever seen. So if this is what you meant to write why? I'm curious since it doesn't match any other teaching I've ever scene. Does it seem to work better for you? Why does it work better? If it isn't please fix it. Otherwise there are going to be some very confused beginners out there who learn using your method and then try and dance socially. It's not very fair to them and they'll probably quit rather than try and fix it.
