    Well.....

    Name off some to get my brain wondering, I only know one or two.

    What are some meters you can play "aginist"(SP? I just woke up, freaking needed help to spell "Rhythm".) another meter?
     
  2. i think i know what you're talking about.
    listen to "toads of the short forest" by the mothers of invention.
    after the breakdown, one drummer's in 3/4, one drummer's in 7/8, the bass is in 3/4, organ's in 5/8, tambourine's in 3/4, "and the alto sax blowing his nose."

    i dunno if i'm going in the right direction, but listen to the song anyway. it's killer.
