Turbulence - Exercise 1 Turbulence - Exercise 3

This part is a bit tricky as far as rhythm goes. As much as you can, really try to pay attention to what the different instruments are playing during this part in the Full Video. Basically, there are two time signatures occurring at the same time, which means we have what's called polymeter. The guitar is repeating a 5/8 riff, while the drums are keeping a consistent 4/4 groove underneath.

When listening to that section in the full video, try to distinguish both separate time signatures that the drums and guitar are each playing.
