What a great disco track from Cody, I thought. But it's Cody, there often is a catch-out for the unwary. And it only took a few bars after putting it into Reaper that I found them... Ouch. If you play straight 4/4 though the track, it starts to get weird!! This is thanks to some cheeky and tough time signature changes. At least that's how I interpreted it. This is what I found: 20s: Bar of 7/8 51s: Bar of 3/4 1m 24s: ...

I played a bass track on this one. But I only recorded it once and made copy/paste because I can't play like you did , mpointon, too difficult for me (specially when slapping) with alternate 4/4 then 7/8 and sometimes 13/16 then 15/16. Respect to you and Cody. I will post my own soon.:)+0

mpointon Erm, bars of funny time signatures! Thank you, Wade. I worry in these situations that, somehow, I'm hearing the track completely wrong and that I'm making up weird measures where they don't exist!

I always appreciate your input and opinion though. I know you're a man of music and always listen to your words. Thank you.
