To my many musico friends,

I know I must be the dumbest member of the music fraternity, but I must
ask what is an 8/21 time signature?

8 beats per measure.

1/21 gets the beat.  What is 1/21?

One flag is an 8th note
two flags is a 16th note
three flags is a 32nd note

two flags and a little spit is a 21st note?

Clarinet maven, but shaky on 8/21 time signatures.
