I tried to play along to a Grateful Dead track last night. I am not real familiar with their music. This is off "Blues for Allah". I have mostly only heard their really mainstream/popular stuff. Is it me or are a lot of their songs really hard to "feel the beat" on? Listening to the album through today and it's like that feeling is there through the whole album. Like the drums come and go or they're passing around who is in charge of keeping the beat. Same time signature but the rhythm changes a lot? Is this a characteristic of "jam band" stuff? I've listened to a lot of Phish over the years.. not sure if I feel the same way about them. I don't think I was thinking real hard about what I was listening to.
