Re: Odd-time songs that sound natural
Just saw Gavin perform this during a Zildjian clinic last month: awesome! And as Tommy D noted, Gavin goes out of his way to mix things up each time he plays this song or for that matter anything else according to him. He does this to keep it fresh to him and to those listening.
While watching him play, I pay zero attention to all the time changes even though being a drummer I am very aware of them. It is simply a joy to see a consummate professional attack such a piece with totally confident, consistent strokes while conveying the feel and nuance of the piece. Great stuff!
