Makes 4/4 sound kinda like odd meter.
Btw I studied with Joe Morello and he said that DB's time was all over the place. Lol
that is a classic way to approach the ride pattern..... especially in up tempos
where and when did you study with Joe?
Joe and I had a mutual friend and we would often share a beer and a sandwich at Joes favorite bar in Irvington NJ
