If you're drumming in church you may have heard the debate over whether Reckless Love by Cory Asbury is in 6/8 or 4/4. I always counted it in 12/8 which is kind of the best of both worlds, but that's beside the point. Asbury says 6/8, and I can hear it. I can also hear the 4 count with the melody of the chorus quite strongly. So today I saw this video of a young man doing an intentional 4/4 cover which is quite good. He even breaks down the math of it all and how he found the tempo and constructed new parts for an arrangement his band had done. I thought it was so well done that I would share it here.
