Nate Smith – “Skip Step”

Funk in 17/8. An of example of Nate Smith “finding the 4” in odd time signatures.

A transcription of the first released track from Nate Smith’s album, “Kinfolk : Postcards From Everywhere”.

Every second bar has an extra quaver to the count, making the rhythm 4/4 and 9/8 repeated throughout the song. This can also be felt as 17/8 time, with the back beat placed in the bar to feel the 4. Funky as f#@*k!

It’s not what you play, it’s how you play it.
