    25/16 like you never imagined it.

    This guy is awesome. Talking about how to give weird time signatures grooves. It's well worth the watch, but for the impatient check out 2:58 as he counts in, and at 4:10 for a different groove; all the examples are in 25/16.

    reminds me of the way a band like king's x would treat odd times. there was/is ALWAYS a strong groove. In fact often times, the groove is so strong that though you know *something* is somewhat off, it takes forever to count out the time sig because the groove makes it feel good.

    This is how "weird" time signatures should be done: effortlessly and still with groove, not just "complex for the hell of it."
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
