Well, the term `Taktzahlen' in this context still sounds really odd
to me, and I'm a german native speaker, which is also an explanation
for my broken english ;-)

Right. The problem with `Zahlen' is that it's often a synonym for
`Anzahl' (amount / count).

Even if shows more results for `Taktzahlen',
it still doesn't mean that it's the correct word ;-)

I'm not an active musician, and only decades ago I did do music
with others (orchestra, choir), so I may be wrong, but I've a strong
feeling towards `Taktnummern'. It's less ambigous.
