Hah, thanks. Makes more sense now, although I never really counted that groove since I never had any problem playing it. Was just wondering out of curiousity.I don't know how you can count three through it!!! kheddar was correct. It's 7/8 split into two bars of 7/16. The end of the song is 5/8 (and is the same pattern as the start of "Slippin'Away") I think you'll find a transcription of that part earlier in this thread.
And by the way, I never actually tried counting 3 beats, I counted 6 beats per bar, but that didn't feel quite right.. Gymnastics for the mind though! I really find it amusing playing the "wrong" beat. when jamming Sound of muzak the other day I played 4/4 over the verses. Do you ever do such things too?
