Name the time signature.
Not too sure if this will take off, but i thought it would be good to have a thread where we post songs that we can't work out the time signature of.

To begin with, here's a song by Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. I really can't work out the time signature of it, i think it's because there is quite a lot going on, and it's difficult to pin down a beat.

it's in 5

didn't listen to the whole of it but the first proper riffs are in 5

Tune my fork 11-30-2012 11:35 AM!/search/song?q=Robert+Mitchell+3io+Maz

this took me a while to work out. It's in 15. or one bar of 6 then 5 then 4

Everything in this song:

The comments suggest the stripped down groove bit is in something silly like 4/4 over 9/8 but I've no clue if thats true.

First theme for Exit Sun is (2+3)+(2+2)+(3+2). You could think of it as an additive 9/8 grouped as 2+3+2+2, coupled with a 5/8 grouped as 3+2.

EDIT: Just skipped to about 3 minutes in. The syncopated rhythm is a 9/8 again grouped as 2+3+2+2.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 11:48 AM.
