What is the time signature in Rice Paper Wings?

I'm no musician, but I like to pretend I am. I could not count along with this song tonight. It seems like there are extra beats stuck in every once in a while.

So, all you music geeks... what is it???? Confused

Signed,
Tone Deaf in Bucyrus

I'm voting for it starting in three, then switching to four, but very synchopated.

I forgot about the short opening & ending sections. I can't remember exactly how they go, & I don't have the disc here, but I think you may be right, AGT.

But right before the chorus there's two too many or two too few beats, aren't there? Confused

Or can I not count?

I learned how to keep the beat when I was little and took tap and jazz classes. My son has already figured out how to keep the beat better than his sister 3 years his senior. Big Grin

not knowing much either - I would say this:
The intro is 3/4 time (lke a waltz just count I-2 3 , 1, 2, 3


It then switches to 4/4 time
Count 1..2..3..4
with one sychopation (sp) (that acustic guitar that clearly plays three times near the end)
then back to 3/4 for the end ..

another great example of this is found in BEING for the benefit of Mr Kite..

It starts in 4/4 - does a 3/4 waltz beat in the middle- then goes back to 4/4.
thats my HO...

the Beatles were great for throwing in waltz beats for small sections of songs.

I hate to say that was Paul's influence..
but that was Paul's influence.

though I DONT think you'll see that on the SUPERBOWL HALFTIME SHOW tommorow- the only reason to watch an otherwise yawner of a game..though some may think between halfs may be worst of all


(not this cat however....)

anyway.. RPW is a terrific song..in every way.

i don't know about that. john was the one changing time signatures all the time.
