It can be said that the timing of combos in fighting games have a real rhythm behind their execution. Those with backgrounds in music could feel right at home when it comes to the execution of strict and complex combos.

Even Dan's corner infinite in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition has a bit of a rhythm to it. While it might appear to be simple at first glance, the combo is actually fairly difficult to perform consistently thanks to the subtle stutter stepping that's necessary to keep Dan within range. As such, Knxwledge has recently uploaded a clip on Twitter that plays a musical track based on the timing of the combo.

This isn't the first time a fan has created a theme song that's based on Dan's infinite. Desk, a master of fighting game execution, also found a way to make Dan's infinite into a music video.

However, I'd say that Knxwledge's beat is more mellow compared to Desk's music video. Of course, it still manages to be very catchy.

For anyone who is having some difficulty performing Dan's infinite, it might be worth it to listen to this rhythm to get an idea on when each move needs to be performed. Getting the rhythm in your head could be the key to getting execution down.
