Prog-Gnosis: Using Unusual 16th-Note Syncopations and Odd-Length Phrases
The guitarist's latest column explores unusual 16th-Note syncopations and odd-length phrases.
The following content is related to the November 2012 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now, or in our online store.
"Earth Departure" is one of the most adventurous tunes on the new Animals As Leaders album, Weightless. The song features some very intense, complex figures that require extremely tight band interplay.
To my way of thinking, much of the song is in straight 4/4 time, but it doesn't sound like it because many of the rhythms are based on unusual 16-note syncopations and odd-length phrases. In this month's column, I'll analyze the song's outro guitar solo, which is one of my favorite solos on the record.
