Fwd: 6/8 rhythm online for practice

We worked on the 6/8 rhythm at practice today and made progress. I've
found practicing at home helpful and here's an easy way to do it:

1. Copy the text between the lines below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<style version="2.0">
     <pattern id="0" length="12">
        <drum id="0">000200000202</drum>
        <drum id="6">101000101000</drum>
        <drum id="9">202022020202</drum>
2. Go to

3. In the new window, select File/Import beat from text... on the menu bar

4. Past the text you copied into the text area & click the Import
button at the bottom.

You should hear the cerdo & tamborin parts for the 6/8 rhythm.
