Thanks for watching!
Thanks for watching! Also, The numbers for the beats and claps are a little out of sync at parts, but I made this whole thing in Movie Maker so this was the most accurate I could get.
I didn’t see anything, I just noticed how my own clapping suddenly made more sense at the time you said “there!”
Thank you so much Joshua. I've rarely been to a concert in my 69 years where I could clap along...it's usually the audience that starts clapping and invariably they clap on 1 & 3. If the musicians start the clapping, it's usually on 2 & 4 and I can join in. I've never understood as I find clapping on 1 & 3 unbearably restrictive and actually stops the body moving. The program 'The Art of Drumming' talking about the emergence of the back beat in the 1950s says to understand how it came about you have to look back to gospel music, R&B and the music African Americans were singing in church. J.M. Van Eaton (house drummer at Sun Records) goes further, saying white people clap on 1 & 3, black people clap on 2 & 4. I have a black ancestor so I'm happy with this explanation. I suspect Harry Connick Jr is probably so used to audiences clapping on 1 & 3 he has the sneaky 5th beat well under his belt!
Nice trick! Thanks for the neat video.
Love this so much! Harry is amazing!
