Okay, here's Ride the Wild Turkey,
at a reasonable tempo.
One, two, three, four.
here's a closeup of the third part of Ride
the Wild Turkey.
Remember that this whole part is actually
eight bars.
It's an even number of bars and an even
number of beats.
We're just syncopating over it in threes
until we get to the end of it so.
We're going to play it real slow for you,
so you can kind of feel how this goes.
We'll play it three times slowly.
Okay, here we go.
So this is the start of that third part.
One, two, three.
Let's do that one more time.
One, two, three and.
Okay, so just go back keep rewinding that
we'll do it one more time at close to full
speed so you can kind of hear it.
And just go ahead and count through one,
three, four, one, two, three, four.
Okay, one, two, three, four.
You can do this.
