Let's look at a fast, fusion 16th note groove in 5/4. This is patterned after a song of my mine "Khatahdin" from the first GHS (Gambale,Hamm,Smith) CD. You can break it down by counting the eighth note 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-,1-2. The 19th notes are pretty quick, so remember to stay loose and relaxed if you intend to play this groove for a sustained period of time.
