This book will get you comfortable playing in odd time signatures. Using a simple, yet effective counting system, it will provide a method for breaking down odd meters in a way that works for you. Based on the concept introduced in Dom Famularo's best-selling book, It's Your Move, Odd Feelings presents grooves and exercises in 18 different time signatures. Divided into chapters on quarter-, eighth-, and sixteenth-note based meters, with an additional section about mixed-meter grooves, it also includes eight play-along tracks designed to really get you grooving.
A multimedia disc is included that contains MP3s and Quick Time videos. The MP3s demonstrate selected examples and include the play-along tracks minus drums. The videos also highlight various examples from the book, and include demos of the play-along tracks.
