One of the few games that works well for just two people. Very good for classically inclined musicians.

Set up

Agree on who starts as the eight-note player and who as the half-note player. These values provide Default Notes Density for a player.

Gameplay instructions

Game is played in a 4/4 rhythm. Each player will play in his or her Default Notes Density for two bars then players swap roles.

Game end

Try to come together to a musically natural end of the piece (typically with slowing down).
