If you can imagine a James Brown pocket in 7, this is it. This is a very funky and simple way to play in 7 duple feel. Odd meter is often viewed and assumed as difficult to approach because of its oddness. However, when applying simple familiar phrases to any odd meter one can see how simple odd meter can be approached and performed. This chant was inspired by James Brown’s “Say It Loud I’m Black And I’m Proud”. Continuing this chant repetitively makes this approach to 7 duple feel easily understood.
