I think this tread should be a keeper!.

A great reference in a study of "odd-time signatures".

I think thats the great thing about Drummer Cafe...it usefulness increase everyday.

The Core by Eric Clapton,of course its Gadd playing.

What a great tune that is. The bell part alone is too cool for words.

But it's not Mr. Gadd.

It's actually a guy named Jamie Oldaker, who played on that and all the other tracks on Clapton's  http://www.cduniverse.com/search/xx/music/pid/6790744/a/Slowhand.htm]Slowhand .

"Fill her up" by Sting. it appears on the Brand New Day album.

I think it ends in a odd time signature. I can't remember what.

I remeberd another song by temple of the dog

I believe it's "Pushin' Forward Back" which seems to be in 7/8. Btw, the whole Temple Of The Dog album is great and contains some oustanding work by Matt Cameron.

Thanks for the correction Christopher,whenever I hear a great groove on a Clapton song I ,wrongfully, assume its Gadd.I will do more research before I post something that I`m not 100% on.

I know what you mean. Gadd is one of those guys that you just figure is playing the coolest of the cool if you hear something from an artist that he's played with.

But Jamie rocks too.

And by the way, you cost me $11.99.  ;) I was forced to buy Slowhand from BestBuy when I found myself there earlier tonight and I realized that I didn't have it on CD.  ;D

Not so sure the tune should be in this thread though as its in 4/4, but I clipped a little of the song to let everyone else revisit what an awesome groove Jamie lays down.

Check out the feel, the sticking, the bell and what his left hand is doing during the chorus and sax/guitar solo parts.

Sweet stuff, my favorite Clapton song.

Turn it up real loud and check out…  http://mywebpages.comcast.net/ckkod/thecore.mp3]The Core.mp3

GOLDEN BROWN  by the Stranglers   3 bars of3/4 followed bt a 4/4 bar  (or that COULD be rwo bars of 3/4 followed by a 7/4 bar)    Also another Stranglers one is "Nice and Sleazy"   I havent really thought about the time signature but it IS does have a 6/4 bar (or two 3/4 bars) thrown in to trip up drummers

"The Tango King" off of Bruce Hornsby's "Hot House" CD is in 9/8 but has a natural feel.  Great song, fun to play along with.
