That is a really cool feel. Are you sure the flutes are getting the rhythm right? If you are playing the part as the midi file sounds, the flutes should have an easy time of it.

5/4 Strumming

Try combining familiar times to achieve an odd time familiarity.
Such as meshing 6/8 and 2/4.

|------------6/8-------------| |-------2/4-------|

This is the easiest way I've found to embrace odd times. The success comes from making it sound EVEN.

I haven't listened to the MIDI postings, but you can either make sure the flute rhythms aren't obnoxiously syncopated, or you can move the syncopation to the middle of the measure, instead of the end of the measure, where the necessity of counting will be greatly decreased.

I was working on this today. I used:


1& &3 4 5

Works good with the chord change on the last two beats of the measure.

Super old thread, but still relevantish. I've never played 5/4, but that looks like an annoying pattern. Then again, I don't do a whole lot of strumming unless I'm playing ska so that would probably be out of my area anyways, lol.
