Rodney Holmes & Paul Gilbert - Synchronicity - Time Signature or groove name?


Junior Member
Greetings all,

I "play at' guitar and am not a drummer.

What is the time signature or "type of groove / name" (if it's just 4/4) for this tune ?

Paul Gilbert at Iridium with Rodney Holmes :

15:50 in (28:35 on the "embedded timer)

Skip to 18:30 for some great "trading" between Rodney and Paul

I'd call that 3/4; or you could count it in 6. The style doesn't really have a name-- you could call it a funky jazz waltz, or a jazzy funk waltz. Though we try to stay away from the word "jazzy"...
