I think it's in alternating signatures, but I want to try this at a band practice but I don't know what time signature it is.

The song is Proto Cosmos.

it's in 4/4 it's just syncopated a little.


Are you sure? Someone told me it changes between 6/8 and 4/8...I couldn't hear that so I decided to post this...

Specifically I mean the opening with the drum solo where the guitar goes, "da da da!"

It's 2/4 and 4/4 at first.

The intro:

2/4 3/4 3/4 2/4 3/4 3/4 2/4 3/4 3/4 2/4 3/4 3/4 2/4 and into the solo which is:

12 bars of 3/4, and 1 bar of 2/4 repeat the phrase until the repeat of the main melody at the end.

Here's my take of the tune over a backing:

Sjones-Protocosmos

All the best,

Thanks! And nice recording! Can you tell me what the backing chords are or what key it's in?
