Time Signatures: Mixing Them Together Ex. 1 (Easy) Time Signatures: Backing Track - 4/4 Ex. 1

We're now going to be mixing the following time signatures: 7/8, 4/4, 15/16, and 19/16. This passage has a bit of a Joe Satriani vibe to it.

The most difficult parts you'll face with this are the 15/16 and the 19/16 sections. The transition from one measure to the next is what's tricky. You'll notice that the last note in each measure ends on a downstroke, but immediately after that downstroke you'll have to do a quick upstroke to begin the next measure. As always, practice slowly!
