This could be completely wrong, but it kind of sounds like three bars of 7/8 and one bar of 4/4.

I think it's a bar of 4/4 followed by 7/8

I'm hearing 3 lots of 4/4 followed by a bar of 9/8, although to be honest it sounds more like you're not coming in early enough on the last bar rather than it being right-on-the-money 9/8.

I think you're right, would this be a difficult drumbeat to get down?

Yeah, seems like the fourth bar is played for too long. It sounds like it should be in 4/4 all the time. And the riff starts an 8th before the first bar. I would shorten the last note before the riff starts again. Here it's a fourth which makes the last bar an 8th longer than the three other bars. So change that note to an 8th.

If a drummer can't play a beat over a simple riff, then he's not that great drummer. Because drummer should know the rhythm very well.

Here are the three "possible" versions of the riff I recorded (I also made a simple drum track). The last one is the 4/4 - 9/8 thing. The two others are 4/4 all the time.

Wow! Thank you for the advice and recordings, they were a great help. I think my drummer's problem mostly came from my sloppy playing though haha!

three bars 4/4, one bar 2+2+3+2/8

though it really does sound like sloppy 4/4
