The total phrase adds to 11, so possibly 11/8 depending on where the quarter note is in the rest of the song.

the riff is 11 beats long. so 11/4 or whatever multiple you want to take that to.

11 beats..so it could be 4/4 measure then a 7/4 measure just depends on how you feel it or how it's written down

And yet odd meters are typically broken into two (or more) in how they are felt anyways. What you might be hearing as a new "1" is possibly an *accent* subdividing the meter.

For example, Frank Zappa's "Watermelon In Easter Hay" is notated as 9/4, but it's felt as a group of 4 and a group of 5. It's still okay for us to speak of it as being in 9/4 though.

I didn't actually listen to the link though, so I could be wrong.

^ One bar of 5/4, then a bar of 6/4, there's a pretty clear "1" on each.


I was just giving an example

And I was being specific because it's a specific question and the groove in question is only realistically going to be felt like that. Saying what you said is as incorrect as saying D#=Eb. They're equivalent, but imply different things.

I wasn't aware I needed rolleyes for helping out. I'll try and avoid including any detail in my posts in future.

Sure, some things you hear as one way, some you hear another. This tune has a pretty big "1" at the start of each. Count it as 11, then count it as 5+6, I would say the latter is a far better description of the feel.
