Chaircrusher! He was the first reader to correctly identify the meter of my last loop as 27/16. Since he cheated by using Sound Forge and some complex mathematics, I’m withholding 2 of the 3 prizes; the cooler full of yellow snow and the meet and greet with Dream Theater. However, he will still receive a three month subscription to the coveted “member’s only” area of ryangruss.com
Thanks to everyone who played along at home. It sure was an intense and geeky contest. And for those who are curious as to the rhythmic structure of the groove, it’s essentially a bar of 7/8 followed by a bar 13/16…. resulting in the 27/16 meter.
