GUEST,Fogie Odd meters, 7/8 anyone? (87* d) RE: Odd meters, 7/8 anyone? 31 Aug 06

Anyone got East Wind -Andy Irvine and co. The dance of Sulieman is in 11/8 - managed to get it written but I cannot play it in anything other than approximation -I keep wandering into 10/8 time The thing is it seemingly randomly mixes beats of 3+4+4 -if it kept to the same count things might be easier but the tune changes to stick the 3 beat in here and there. It is a great tune from Macedonia, and I take my hat off to those who manage to play and dance in these exotic rhythms.
