Re: ...for the jazz cats ...
when playing in 3/4 i like to comp in 4/4 so it goes round in circles. i think its a good way to break out of an otherwise regimented feel. i find that if i just play standard foot patterns (hihat on 2 etc) then it can all sound a bit boring and samey. i guess the trick is to move things around but not disrupt the overall flow.
dunno if that makes sense to anyone.
