Walk about HELP!


Jersey, Channel Islands
:confused: Can anyone help me?
I'm learning "Walk About - Immer Unterwegs" and I was wondering if someone could play it for me to download as a sound file? I have the first bit good, but when I come to the time sig 5/8 (9th bar) I loose it. I then pick it up and get back on track at the time sig 4/4 (13 bar). :blush:

"Help me Obi Wan Kenobi. Your my only hope."
Some of the groups I play with keep the beat the same through the time changes, so that the quaver becomes the beat in the 7/8 and 5/8 sections. Played that way the crochets in the 7/8 & 5/8 section would get two beats and each quaver one beat.

Try that for now.

Yup, I'll support what Justin said. I am doing a study piece with my teacher that alternates bars in 6/8 and 4/4 and the trick is indeed to count in quavers. Use a metronome or tap it out. I don't know Walk About but I looked at the music, tried it and it works.
Good luck
I have tried that but I'm not 100% sure I'm getting it, and I'm not that good. A little help would be great.:blush:

Count it. As has been mentioned, subdivide the 5/8 & 7/8 bars, FTM subdivide them all, think of the 4/4 as 8/8. The main thing is that quaver stays the same throughout. clap the rhythm, as slowly as you have to.

Also looking at how the quavers are grouped might help. The 4/4 bars are all 4+4. 7/8 bars are all 4+3. 5/8 bars are all 3+2.
Hope that helps.
An alternative approach is to download Finale notepad for $10, learn how to input the dots, then it will play it back in perfect mechanical time for you to play along with.

Although this program used to be free, it is still well worth the money!
