I was looking at the power tab for Laid to Rest by Lamb of God and I was counting along with it as in 123,123,123... but thats 6/8 timing I suppose. But then the tab says 4/4 timing so that must mean I should count as in 1234,1234,... So what is the correct timing then? To me it sounds like it has a triplet feel for some reason. I dont know I may be wrong.

if every 123 is a measure that's 3/4, but I dont know...it does seem to be in 4/4 though,

Since there is no such thing as perfect tone, and every rig has differences (however slight they may be), I hereby declare this claim as bullshit.

It's 4/4 but the guitar riff is counting with a triplet feel.

Waiting for you.

So, since its in 4/4 timing I suppose, would I count the whole song as in 123,123,123,...?
#13
Nolly's got it.

LOG have some sick rhythms going on. BTW, what's the time signature for Ashes of the Wake? I was listening to WSOU's traffic update, and it was playing in the background, but all I could really hear was the drum track and the guitars faintly, and i guessed i never really listened to the the rhythm of it, but it seems like either the guitars are slightly ahead, or the drums are slightly behind, kind of like in Converge's "Eagles Become Vultures". Confirmation?

Not really no; the drums keep a continuous 4/4 beat at a relatively slow tempo while the guitars play in 8th note triplets, if the drums had the same kind of feel as the guitar parts then it would be 6/8 or 12/8.

No you should count 1,2,3,4 counting one beat for each of the 123s you talk about. Until right at the end where you would switch to 1,2,3,1,2,3 when the lyrics 'If There Was A Day I Could Live' come in as the time signature changes there. Then with the outro of the song you'd switch back to 1,2,3,4.
If you're not sure what I mean i can rephrase it if you want

Edit:

It does actually change to 3/4 near the end for a bit. 3:03 - 3:32


that's the part you'd count 1,2,3,1,2,3

That would be good if you can rephrase that just so that I can get a better feel for it when I learn the song. Also, how would you count other time signatures like 6/8 or any wierd ones and exactly why is the song in 4/4 timing instead of 3/4, are you listening to the drums not the guitar?

You count it as

1 2 3, 2 2 3, 3 2 3, 4 2 3

where the numbers in bold are the four beats of the bar.

Yes, you follow the drums rather than the guitar. It would only take slight changes to the accenting to give the whole track a 6/8 (or 12/8) feel.
