    Need some of your advice again guys, this time with the intro to Walkin' by Miles Davis. I'm having trouble figuring out the time, I can't make any sense of the beginning of this tune at all, I can't even find the first beat.

    Once the solos get going, no problem - it's a straightforward blues tune, and it's great, but I have no idea how to approach the beginning section, I can't figure out what's going on at all. Anyone have any knowledge or experience with this tune?

    Here is a photo of the music. It's tricky. The first note is on 4 the hits are on 2 and 4

    Thank you for that! Much appreciated. The hint about the hits on the 2 and 4 is especially useful, I have spend a bit of time to getting my ears used to what's happening there.
