Performing in 3 is amongst my favorite of meters. The chant is simple in nature. Notice how the kick drum only strikes the down beat in the first measure. The kick pattern plays on the “and” of every other beat. This creates an illusion that does not sound like a three beat phrase. The tempo from slow to moderate changes the musical atmosphere because the faster the tempo, the more the chant sounds unlike 3.
