Style sought - 5/4 in a Bossa feel
« on: October 03, 2020, 07:00:57 AM »
Andy Williams sings a song called "Pretty Butterfly", a song written by Brazilian composer Mario Albanese, and it is written in 5/4, but the 5/4 style on the Genos is more or less limited to Dave Brubeck's "Take Five" - a Classic piece on its own.

Would anybody have a Bossa or Salsa type 5/4 style in their arsenal?  How difficult would it be to "convert" one of the preset latin styles to a 5/4 timing?

In the meantime, I'll have a study of Pedro's post on Style Creator.

Thanks
Dave
