13/8 Odd Meter Style
13/8 Odd Meter style
Funky sounding 13/8 style, inspired by the gorgeous ballad Lionel Loueke wrote: Forgiveness. So beautiful.
Think of it as a 12/8 or triplet style 4/4 if you wish. There's an extra beat at the end.
WARNING: BIAB doesn't display odd meters! So it's 13/8 and I pressed it into a 4/4 beat…
Spice up mid tempo songs by reducing chord duration: best is two chords per bar (you can go four chords per bar, but that won't sound good. Stella By Starlight, Autumn Leaves, All The Things you are (you don't have to reduce chords for All the things)
