    I split it up into threes with a stress on the first note of each group. I don't know if that's a good idea, but it sometimes helps me.

    Everything breaks down into combinations of 3 and/or 2. It will depend on the signature, time and feel, but breaking it down is the best way to get a grip on it.

    Check Bassbooks.com and search for time signatures
