Rant: I grew up with a piano, and piano lessons from my step mom. I wanted to play drums from as far back as I remember. I got forced to play tenor sax cuz that's what our family had layin' around. I didn't like it so much but liked my 6th grade music teacher. She was one of those special old people that are super cool even though you are young. In 7th grade my teacher sucked and I still wanted to play drums and my parents and teachers thought I was talented at sax. I quit. My 6th grade teacher actually cried and I felt bad for months. They made me play sax to save money but if they'd given me a practice pad and Stick Control by George B. Stone I'd have had worlds of fun like I do now. Rant over. I'd probably be a drummer in a band tho which I already said I don't want to be. I can still blow a few hours with Stick Control tho.
Could one of you clever percussionists (or just plain clever people) please tell me the time signature/s for Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac.
My friend (guitarist) has always had problems with it and we sat together recently and I worked it out on guitar, but it was primarily by accident and I don't actually know what is going on there. I would like to know what I am playing!
I figured the chorus was 4/4 but the verse seems not.
What's weird is that 4/4 is about the only time signature I get!
I feel I am in twilight zone at the moment.
What is going on?
You know in the verse there is the bit with it that progresses from the F to the C before the Bb and it's a strange stop/start progression (on the C), is that what is making me feel that it's somehow different?
*edit - I think it is. I just counted it out and it seems 4/4 but that stop/hold on the C is like a 1/2 measure or something that has made me think differently.
