a: time signature ~
b: canvas


"To cement this concept for him, I used the analogy that the time signature is like the painter's canvas. It has dimensions and the painter can only paint within the dimensions of the canvas. The rhythmic subdivisions (specifically the Table of Time) are much like the painter's palette. Drummers use different combinations of rhythmic subdivisions to creatively subdivide the pulses within each measure of a song."
