Aaron Comess: Past, Present & Future
3 of 16
Past Present & Future - filigree instrumental in 7/16 from the album "beautiful mistake" The subdivision on this one is: 1 2, 1 2, 1 2 3 and the sticking is almost like a paradiddle. The vers groove is based on a turkish rhythm, Aaron learned years ago in the New York based Big Band "the Istanbul Orchestra" ..very cool groove, have fun with this one!
Aaron Comess: The Beast
4 of 16
The Beast - from the upcoming Aaron Comess album "Sculptures" The subdivision on this track is rather complicated and also sounds odd, when you listen to it the first time: 3 3 4 , 3 3 4 , 3 3 6 But in the end it all sums up into 32 and that basically fits in to a normal 4/4 bar ..have fun with this one and buy the record!

Wacky - another track from Aaron´s up coming album "Sculptures" A very cool, almost Hip-Hop ísh beat with a wacky in between feel.. Yeah!
