Deftones - You've Seen the Butcher - Timing


Maybe the name of this blog should include something about ADD or OCD. Either way, enough time was spent perfecting this, I figure I might as well share it with the Interwebs.

I'm a big fan of Deftones and their 2010 album Diamond Eyes was unsurprisingly awesome.  You've Seen the Butcher is an awesome track.  The timing is subtly complicated, so I decided to chart it out.  Hope this helps someone.

All time signatures are x/4, and the number of beats in each measure are shown.  For many parts of the song, the final measure's number of beats is the same as the part that follows. These are noted.
