Just started playing in a Finnish folk music group, and there are some odd meters
involved, and I need a little help.
When figuring these out, I am counting the smallest subdivision I can feel.
So on one tune, I am feeling eigth notes and counting
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8, and in anoither part of the tune
I am feeling, 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9. Which to me feels like
8/8 and 9/8 respectively.
I know it is hard without hearing the tune, but is this even close to being a
good way for dealign with odd meters? Also, is there a differecen between one
measure of 8/8 and two measure of 4/4?
Any good materials or tunes to listen to for coping with odd meters?
