Odd Meters - 5/4 Part 2 (Dindi Example).

In this lesson I show how to approach playing in 5/4. Odd meters are not as scary as most people think if you have some kind of concept. This idea of this lesson is to give you that concept. I use the classic tune take 5 as an example and also my arrangement of DINDI as played by OTIS. 

Here is a YouTube video of this arrangement being played by my group OTIS with Vocalists Gillian Moorman on the New Zealand TV program, The Good Morning Show.

More to come on this topic. At some point I'll cove how to solo over this odd meter and cover 7/8, 7/4 and 9/8 etc. Any questions do let me know?
