Example A10.1i

The girls are learning the game. Zoey is teaching them how to play and sings the tune by herself. They pass the slap around with little reference to the tempo of the melody (in fact, it seems as though Zoey tries to make the melody match the speed of the claps).

Note: 1st iteration is more rhythmically regular. Most of the

text is recited in unison.

In notated iteration, the text is passed from one player to another, mostly 1 syllable per clap (i.e., hocket).

Letters above vocal line indicate the initial letter of the name of the player chanting each syllable.

3rd iteration (Susan and Alida) is less rhythmically regular.

Hand action is the same but paired.

Division of the text between players is differenteach

player tends to recite whole words and phrases.

Text variant iteration 3“Hip hop belly flop, hip hop strawberry flop.”
