Background: I started with this one: Band - The Weight with Bass 2018.03.09 - Band - The Weight with Bass
However the timing isn’t right because there’s 7/4 measure behind the “And and and…you put the load right on me” part, however the OPB version stayed in straight time, so there’s an extra quarter note on that part.
Also, because we only have 2 vocalist and not 3, for us it works best to have that part be 6/4 instead. Either way, I needed to be able to have that odd time measure in place.
So there’s 6 parts included here:
- Intro: 4 count with a roll at the end.
- Part 1: The Turnaround (The Walk Down from C to G, we start off with that riff)
- Part 2: The Verse
- Part 3: The Chorus
- Part 4: 6/4 measure (Also included a 7/4 measure you could swap in)
- Outro: The Turnaround.
I tried putting the 6/4 measure as a transition on the Chorus, but it seems like you can’t switch time signatures for a transition beat? It always seemed to treat it like a 4/4 measure, so I had to resort to putting it as its own song part. Also, we play it at a slower tempo (64 instead of 72), so I’ve included both versions.
Anyway, I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. We will be debuting it with drums on Wednesday evening!
