A new Play Rhythm service and its rhythm descriptions

I'm going to describe here a simple language for describing rhythms that hand drummers play. I think this language can be extended to describe any metered rhythm that is used in music.

There is a new service on SongTrellis, the Play Rhythm service that performs and notates rhythms that are described using this rhythm description language.

If you enter the Play Rhythm URL, without any additional parameter specifications, like this:

the service will invent a new single voice rhythm expressed in this description language, show it's notation and perform it, with a click track marking the beat.

The rhythm examples that are shown below all have links attached that will play the example with accompanying click track using the Play Rhythm service.
