"Money" by Pink Floyd is a good one to start with. It's in 7/4, has a clear bass line to follow/hum along to, and it has a good cue at the end of each measure (there is a crash on 7 and 1 during most of the first part of the song). The only time signature change is that it goes into 4/4 during the solo and back to 7 afterward. They also telegraph the time signature changes well in advance.I need suggestions for finding slow tempo, odd time signature songs for beginners. This can include 3/4, 5/4 (if that's a common thing) and *sigh* I suppose 7/8. I would prefer songs that don't switch between signatures. Thanks!
The first two pieces I learned in 5/4 were Take 5 and Everything's Alright.yeah ... swinging in 5/4 is exactly what you want to do with a beginner
I hear you.I'm just pokin at ya my man
but most beginners I deal with have enough trouble swinging in 4/4
people are just exposed enough to that type music today unfortunately
