Digging the podcast this week. Tak for the Screaming Bamboo play. Funny you should play that song, since I was just asking Gilles if he knew what time signature the drums play, because I actually don't know for sure. Gilles thinks 5/8, and he may be correct.

7:48 PM, June 2nd, 2021
Renny G (host)
It's a great song, Jeb. I don't know what the time signature is but it mixed in perfectly.
