This evening we programmed a few different beats in 5/8. We approached the problem in a few ways:
- Basic take on a 6/8 rhythm with the last eighth note removed
- Latin jazz style (this is similar to Dave Brubeck’s classic, Take 5, played by the late great Joe Morello, but with a latin jazz approach to the ride)
- 5/4 back beat — this one was pretty in the pocket; ended up adding a bass part that I think will could work well as part of a track I’ve got in the works)
Fun stuff. If people enjoyed this one, I’m definitely open to do more odd time signature drum beat videos in the future!
Until next time..
