Re: [Harp-L] Traintime

At about 2:26 you 'll hear this 
2 bar chugging pattern which in
itself contains a quite lot of the
techniques he uses in Traintime: (loopable)

The two bars are almost identical, the last
sixteenh note of the first bar does the trick..

(Use a fixed font!)
Only the >-marked notes should be played
The +-notes are exhaled

His timing is before Ginger's beat.

This is a very challenging rhythm.
