Did you know you can compare layering odd meters to a pizza? It’ll all make sense when you watch this full hour lesson with master of interdependence, Marco Minnemann!
Odd time signatures should feel natural, and Marco talks about how to “make yourself at home”, break down odd meters, and count them in a comfortable way (like humming the subdivisions and making the counting musical). It’s much easier to build freedom when you can find the groupings that make the most sense to you.
Marco’s style is especially cool because he often preserves the backbeat, even though he’s working in odd time signatures.
