Groove Of The Week #1 : Polyrhythmic 5/4

First instalment of the groove of the week series! I hope you enjoy! It’s a fun little beat in 5/4 that implies a four pulse polyrhythmically! Take it slow, the last version with the extra ghost notes is nasty 😉

Keep hittin’ things!

    cool video – sounds like 5/4 (as in FIVE FOUR time signature) to me… Polyrhythmic 5/4?

    sounds like a 5/4 groove turning around back to beat 1 every measure, just listen to/feel the 1/4s on the China Cymbal 1-2-3-4-5, 1-2-3-4-5, etc

    still a cool video either way though, good job… cool snare drum!

    • aaronedgardrum
    • November 2, 2012

    It is in the five four time signature. The polyrhythm comes from the fact that there’s four equally spaced kick/snare accents. (Four equally spaced notes in the same time as five equally spaced pulse notes is four over five as a polyrhythm.) Now have that polyrhyrhm disguised as a groove in 5/4 time signature and you have this. 🙂
