    I'm going to tab out this song, and I have the tempos and time signatures for the whole song except for the beginning. It sounds so random and sporadic, and I've tried to align a bunch of different tempos to it in Cubase, but nothing seems to make sense.

    Does anyone have the ability to figure it out? Or any tips? This is the first time I've had major trouble with this.

    I think I figured it out. Sounds like triplets over the same tempo as the next part (185 bpm).

    Looks like 4:3 in triplets, same tempo. Basically it takes the same tempo in triplet feel, but instead of accentuating each 3 notes, it's each 4, and then some other syncopated rhythms thrown in.
