Well done to @Meticus, @RCVN, @Yeti for getting in a pair of 5/4 entries and one 5/8 entry. Nicely done guys, it was far from straight-forward this time around 😝

Meticus - Off-Time Time Challenge
Check it out on Youtube
The track is in 5/4, equipment:
- Ibanez GRX70QA-TRB GIO
- Focusrite Scarlett 2i2
- AmpLion Free
- Cakewalk DAW
Since I bought my first e-guitar 3 months ago I focused on the guitar this time. But it wouldn't be a Meticus track if there wasn't something with bagpipes, but I could resist tootling until the last part of the track 🤣
The powerchords were ok, challenge was to get fast with the pick for the melody since I only played melodies with just my fingers on my acoustic guitars so far. At the beginning I got faster quickly but at 135 bpm there seemed to come no further progress. But it was enough to keep the track under 3 minutes 😃
RCVN - Tired 5/8 Jam
So I did this little project tonight. Very tired, so I decided to do something jazzy (or not exactly in key). Was done on a 5-8 rhythm to a self tapped drum track.
Was more fun than expected though xD
Yeti - Summertime in 5/4
And here's my entry. It's a lazy, 5/4 take on Summer Time from Porgy & Bess.
I'd have loved to have a little more time to do a second take of the solos and vocals and refine the final mix a little... but that'll have to wait for another challenge.
