time signature for White Room
The band I play in is doing White Room by Cream. I just play it without really thinking about the time signature. But we were teaching the drummer and some people think the begining is 4/4 and some 5/4. I count it 1-1-2-3-1-2-3. Sort of like 6/8 with an extra beat. Also kind of 12/8 like.

I think it is 5/4 then 4/4 and back to 5/4 but not 100%

5/4 for the signature lick, then back to 4/4 for the verse/chorus

+1 to voodoo.
Ya ... our drummer was over-thinking the song ... I just play the notes needed and don't usually think about the time signature.
Also I was watching the 2005 live version of the song and you have to love Jack Bruce's bass playing on that song.

its a great song too
Well the experts have confirmed that it is 5/4 on the intro.

great song for a bass player and goes over very well as not many bands can pull it off.
Jethro Tull's _Living In the Past_ is in 5/4, too.

The main groove to Zappa's "Dupree's Paradise" is in 5 as well: http://www.zappa.com/stufftoget/video/index.html
Scroll down to “Montana” & “Dupree’s Paradise” Roxy - Hollywood, CA 1973. After Montana, there's a long improv section (which is killer), and Dupree's starts with a gentle 5 which breaks to a sax and 'bone interlude in fast 9 (call it a slow 3 if you prefer) then a slower 6 that dissolves into the main groove in 5, where Napoleon Murphy Brock breaks out the flute and proceeds to rip it up (about halfway into the viddy).
This performance ranks up there with anything ever done in music in my book.

This is GOOD!
Refers to the great bassists: Charlie Haden, Charles Mingus, Ray Brown, Bach (his furiously good
Semi-quote of McCartney's "Dear Prudence" bass line? :D
