Hello and welcome to Odd Times! An introduction to odd time signatures, in this series we will cover electric and acoustic version of unusual bars and counting.

In this lesson 5/8 will be looked at.  Instead of the usual 4 beats in a bar this has 2 1/2! It feels unusual to start with but once you get used to it, it has an interesting feel and can add another dimension to your songwriting and playing. The riffs are based on rock/metal ideas but the ideas can be applied to other styles.

If you have any questions or comments feel free to ask on the forum
