'A A A B' Switching Between 4/4 And 5/4

Using the 'A A A B' structure to practice changing from the time signature of 4/4 to 5/4.

This lesson will follow the structure discussed in the 'A A A B' lesson only this time rather then the 'B' being a fill, you are now going to switch to 5/4 for the one bar and continue playing a groove.

The structure for this exercise will look like this:
