  1. A rhythmic grid is like a template that can be mentally applied to music. The ability to do this correctly depends on the experience of listening to music in different styles, experience playing musical instruments or creating electronic music, or dancing. But just by applying this template correctly, the music becomes logical and understandable. Even if it's full of syncopations and accents on the weak parts. A strong lobe can be felt even when there is nothing there.

    For some music, everything is quite obvious and smooth, and different instruments emphasize a strong beat, there is a drum beat, a bass tonic, and a chord change also occurs there. But in some styles, on the contrary, everything is more complicated and tricky. Here, for example, is the band's songThe Police – Walking on the Moon, it's just a hi-hat in the first part, which plays the eighth, and the barrel goes to the second and fourth quarters, their drummer Stewart Copeland drew all these things from reggae. But the bass (on which Sting plays) quite clearly indicates a strong lobe, starts because of the beat, but the tonic is on the first lobe.

    In general, the overall picture is perceived as a result.

  2. The whole musical rhythm is divided into strong and weak parts (“one-and-two-and”…), well, except for dubstep stuff…

    This helps to distinguish the rhythm itself and the time distribution of the rhythm, since there are different fractional rhythms(3/4,2/3, 4/4…).
