Morning Cup: Learn 5/4

Recognizing 5/4 Timing in Music -- powered by

Over your morning cup of coffee, I invite you to learn to recognize 5/4 timing in music... or not.

Don't know if this guy is for real or not (let's hope not) but you can check out his additional learn to play jazz piano videos here including how to play the "piano part" of "experimental jazz." Actually, I'll save you the trouble of a click; McBride advises you to just play like a child would and that's experimental jazz in a nutshell. (well... maybe he's not too far from the truth after all!)

Wow. What a shame.

Coming from a rock background, I really DO like 5/4 and 7/8 stuff. Soundgarden were pretty prolific pundits of those pulses. (sorry)

"...2, 3, 4, 5, uh, 3, 4, 5, 1, 2, 3, fu5. And there you have it."
