```             ____________________________________

stressed H-----H-----H-----|-H---H---H---H---|
____________________________________
3/4              vs 2/4```
(every H stands for "Headbang" ;) ... Exercise 2: Learning To Switch (instantly after one measure) The same like exercise 1, but trickier. Immediately switch between 3/4 and 2/4 measures. (In our case, it would be "EAT this, DUMP f--k shit, EAT this, DUMP f--k shit" ZYABLA^HUYABLA)
```             ________________________________________
not stressed --*-*---*---*-*---*---*-*---*---*-*---*-|
stressed H-----H---H-----H---H-----H---H-----H---|

Combination```
Now, focus on NOT doing any breaks while switching. That means you say the words without any hint that there was a comma ever! "EAT this DUMP f--k shit EAT this DUMP f--k shit" ... YOU DID IT! You have now a box of 5/4 which can help you on 5/4 measures! What you think:
```             ___________________________________________
not stressed --*-*---*-|--*-*---*-|--*-*---*-|--*-*---*-|
stressed H-----H---|H-----H---|H-----H---|H-----H---|
___________________________________________
What you play:
___________________________________________
not stressed --*-*-*-*-|--*-*-*-*-|--*-*-*-*-|--*-*-*-*-|
stressed H---------|H---------|H---------|H---------|
___________________________________________```
Even tough you actually play the 2nd stress, it's perfectly ok. You can place your stresses (almost) like you want to. One famous 5/4 rhythm (can be replaced by a 6/4; just play 0-3-2-0-2-0 --> less cool): Toxicity - System Of A Down NOTE: originally Drop C, but who cares ;)
```e|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------(3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2)-|
D|--0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2--(3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2)-|
A|--0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2--(1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0)-|
D|--0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2-0-3-2-0-2--------------------|
H * * H * H * * H * H * * H * H * * H *```
... NOW: 7/4 (the same thing) Exercise 1: Learning To Switch (after a couple of measures) 1. Imagine a Waltz again. 2. Sing the tune, stress the first note of the 3/4 (e.g. "DUMP f--k shit, DUMP f--k shit, DUMP f--k shit" - I know it's vulgar, but guess what: you will always remember how 3/4 goes) 3. Now, imagine a 4/4 song (e.g. drums intro from Yoshida Brothers - Madrugada) 4. Sing the tune again, stress the first note ONLY (do NOT stress the 3rd) (e.g. "THIS is spar-ta, THIS is spar-ta, THIS is spar-ta" xD)
```             _________________________________________________________
not stressed --*-*---*-*---*-*-|---*-*-*---*-*-*---*-*-*---*-*-*------|
stressed H-----H-----H-----|-H-------H-------H-------H------------|
_________________________________________________________
3/4              vs 4/4```
... Exercise 2: Learning To Switch (instantly after one measure) Immediately switch between 3/4 and 4/4 measures. (In our case, it'd be "DUMP f--k shit, THIS is spar-ta, DUMP f--k shit, THIS is spar-ta")
```             ________________________________________________________
not stressed --*-*---*-*-*---*-*---*-*-*---*-*---*-*-*---*-*---*-*-*-|
stressed H-----H-------H-----H-------H-----H-------H-----H-------|
________________________________________________________
same thing again```
again: Ignore the commas and avoid breaks: "DUMP f--k shit THIS is sparta DUMP f--k shit THIS is sparta" ... With this easy trick you are able to play really weird rhythms!
