of either real drums played, or digital representation of drum-
machine loops that are compatible with your loop, in midi files
or patterns in an online drum machine.
Slower and faster loops will be shown according to how closely
they match, just like picture recognition shows you closer and
further, bigger and smaller, by shape or by tone...
You can also add some keywords for a faster search, while
clicking the play button next to that keyword will give you an
example of what that choice means.
Call it "Rhythm recognition".
Songs connected to that rhythm, of course are next in line to
be found this way.

||Good idea, but I think it would be tricky to implement.
||First, the person tapping has to decide which beats are tapped - real drum rhythms will usually have lots of lesser beats in between the major ones, so do you just tap the bass and snare, or the bass+snare+high-hat, or what?
||Next, when you tap a rhythm, you naturally associate a particular sound with each tap - you "hear" something like "bass, snare, bass bass, snare", but what you actually make is "tap tap tap-tap tap".
||As an experiment, try tapping the rhythm from a well-known piece of music, and see if anyone can guess what it is. For you as the tapper, it's very obvious because you "hear" all the nuances - not so much for the listener (or software).

||If you tap with a pencil or finger it is easier for the listener to guess. This as opposed to rhythmically gnashing your teeth.
