The Brown’stone: Odd Time Signatures on Bass Made Easy

This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, we’re talking about a subject I get asked about quite a bit. I’m taking you through my approach to playing so-called “odd-time” signatures. This method allows you to play any of these rhythms comfortably. So grab your bass and join me. You’ll be glad you did!
