I have a pink floyd song book and am learning the song "sheep" from Animals. The problem is that it says the song is in 12/8 at 124 bpm with a quarter note (2 beats right) on the one followed by an eighth note (1 beat right) followed with what looks like a set of triplets or three eighth notes together after twice each bar. When I play it it doesnt sound the same time wise with the recording. But it feels right in 12/8 feel, playing 1a 2+A 3a 4+a. This is the intro Im talking about so this is pretty much it but the same thing goes for the whole song. How have any of you gone about playing this song?
