Basic Fills using Syncopation by Ted Reed

syn·co·pa·tion  

In music, the displacement of regular accents associated with given metrical patterns, resulting in a disruption of the listener’s expectations and the arousal of a desire for the reestablishment of metric normality; hence the characteristic “forward drive” of highly syncopated music. Syncopation may be effected by accenting normally weak beats in a measure, by resting on a normal accented beat, or by tying over a note to the next measure.

[sing-kuhpey-shuhn, sin-]

noun

1.

Music. a shifting of the normal accent, usually by stressing the normally unaccented beats.
2.

something, as a rhythm or a passage of music, that is syncopated.
3.

Also called counterpoint, counterpoint rhythm. Prosody . the use of rhetorical stress at variance with the metrical stress of a line of verse, as the stress on and  and of  in Come praise Colonus’ horses and come praise/The wine-dark of the wood’s intricacies.
