I'm looking to improve my playing ability and counting in alternative time signatures and wonder if you can recommend some songs?
In particular I'm looking for songs which are not too technical as I'd like to be able to focus on timing and counting not playing a thousand notes per second!
4 Strings only please!

Examples I've looked at so far:
- Money - Pink Floyd
- White Room - Cream

Too Technical:
- YYZ - Rush
- Dance of Eternity - Dream Theater
The only 6 words that can make you a better guitarist:

Learn theory
Practice better
Practice more

Have a look at 'Take 5' By Dave Brubeck.

Time Stand Still by Rush has some easy time changes and is, in my opinion, their easiest song.

Most of it is 4/4, but there are parts, for example the intro, which alternates bars of 3/4 and 4/4, plus there's some 7/4 later on. There's also syncopation across the bars as well, so while it isn't technically a different time signature, your ability to hit note durations correctly is doubly important. If it's off, you throw the feel off. There's a lot of difference between a semibreve and a quaver tied with a semibreve in the next bar.

Also came here to suggest Tool. Very interesting use of time signatures, but most aren't overly demanding to play. Something like Schism changes pretty much every other bar
