In Intro to Theory I think they told us that a swing beat was typically treated like an eighth note triplet, with a rest on the middle beat of the triplet. Confusing right? I never understood that, but it seems like its pretty much the same thing as an eight note and a quarter note (or a quarter and then an eighth).
So swing beat usually goes:
ba BAAAA ba BAAAA ba BAAAA
BAAAA ba BAAAA ba BAAAA.
But this song's a little different. For me the beat sounds like:
BAAAAA ba ba BAAAAA ba ba BAAAAA
But like this if you put it over the lyrics:
(BAAA ba ba BAAAA, ba ba BAAA ba ba BAAAA)
Shakin in the forest, what have you to fear?
