Metronome Notation

The title shows the numbers of beats per bar in each rhythm. So 3 1 is 3/4 with 1 for the bar beat. 3 2 1 is 3/4 and 2/4 played simultaneously in the same bar, 6 2 1 is 6/8 with the 2 to play the middle beat, and so on.

The + is for an additive rhythm e.g. 3 1 1 + 2 1 alternates 3/4 and 2/4, with the first beat of the 3/4 played on an extra instrument - i.e. 5/4 with the third beat of the bar emphasized.
