What’s a negative time signature? Well, it’s not really a thing… yet. But Adam Neely made a video about the possibility and what it could mean to write music in -4/4 time, which got me thinking about other possible answers, and I think I’ve come up with something I really like so I thought I’d share. Plus, a little youtube drama never hurt anyone, so why not start a fight with Adam?

Seriously, though, his answer was good too. But still. Fight!
