can somebody tell me what time is schism by tool in?
Ah... I am pretty sure it's in 5/4, if you subscribe to Bass Player, the main riff is in May's issue. But Tool changes time sigs a LOT in their songs, so be prepared.
And I'm out
I goofed... I played it again and realized that, at least the beginning, the song is in 6/8 (I can't find my BP issue to make sure, though).
Sorry bout that.
i know most the song...its really good but not overly complicated i was just wondering what the time sig was
it's begins in 6/8 then 3/4 then 7/4
I just checked the BP may issue and it seems to start in 3/4 then go to 12/8 then to 3/8... not positive though...
Although this thread seems to have run its course, it does belong in MISCELLANEOUS, so off wit ya.
it starts in 6/8, and chancellor says it goes into 6.5/8.
actually it starts in 3/4, which is basically the same as 6/8.
That was it, I knew I read something funny in that issue.
couldn't you just listen to the song? and play the same speed?
What a novel idea...
yeah i could but i wanted to know what time sig it was in ok?
it starts in 3/4 and later goes into 12/8, i believe.
wellll....from what i know about the song is that the main riff ("i know the pieces fit...") is in 3/4....
but what i want to know is how to tell the difference b'tween 3/4 and 6/8. When my school's jazz band recieved a cool latin chart, we spent about fifteen minutes on how to count 6/8....but i think it's easier to count in 3/4. one-and-a two-and-a (six-eight) vs. one two three (three-four;add in "and"s after each down beat to compete with six-eight).
i guess the main difference is that six-eight has a triplet feel to it, thus making it really tw0-four with triplets as opposed to three-four, but counting the eighth notes. hmm....if that's what i know, what i don't know must be friggin complicated! issues like this come up everytime i hear something in three-four (or is it 6/8?). songs like "breaking the girl" by rhcp seems to have percussive emphasis on the downbeats (one, two, three) while the bass has a bit of a triplet feel. the official tab says its in 6/8, but on the "funky monks" video, chad and flea count "one-two-three one-two-three..." which suggests downbeats, but could very well be eighth notes. a lil help here!
by the by, i reckon "6.5/8" is really 13/16. now that is a time that i would hate counting....one-e-and-a two-e-and-a three-e-and-a a-one-e-and-a, etc...the "downbeat" isn't even on the friggin downbeat!
