Jingle Bells in 11/16 rhythm

musician/member name: Mark Gilston
Duration: 00:01:14
Mark Gilston plays a folk dancers send up of Jingle Bells on mountain dulcimer.
AIO (The Annoying Instrument Orchestra) did a Christmas folk dance event where we played all Christmas standards in various different dance rhythms instead of the usual tunes for the dances. This was our "kopanitsa", a Bulgarian line dance in 11/16 rhythm.

Respect! I'm hard pressed to play a 12-bar blues verse that is actually 12 bars long. Might be anywhere from 11 1/2 to 13, much to the consternation of anyone trying to follow my lead. A friend plays a song about a guy with an extra leg, changing time signatures to account for how you would do a 5-legged waltz or whatever. I know what you and he are doing but have no idea how to actually do it. Great stuff.
