I got the track matched up on the measures in the DAW at 5/5, but I've always been a little ignorant of rhythm outside of "just playing on time"
To get past the oddness of the beat, Daniel has provided us with that nice count in measure(s). If you select JUST that section (2 bars in my DAW, but perhaps 1 bar of 5/8?) and loop JUST that section you can jam for a while on that, without the backing, until you get used to phrasing along with the accents within the drums there.
That could help, although the rhythm of the drums has a different grouping that the count-in measures,
That's kind of my bad, but it reinforces the exercise on odd time signatures, so it's good!
the grouping in the count-in is: 1 - 2 - 3 - 1 - 2
While the drums to me are: 1 - 2 - 1 - 2 - 3
Except at the end: 1 - 2 - 3 - 1 - 2

At 5/4 I get a two bar pre-count like Jaf. It may well be then a 10/8 time signature if it was a one bar pre-count. Some help please Daniel. It would help me to sync up the delay times via MIDI on the G-Major better. At the moment, I am probably synced at a half-time feel which for this piece may not be such a bad thing ...
I don't know. I am confused. It still seems to match anyways and maybe that is all that matters?
it is all that matters,
all that theory behind odd time signature should help you understand better not confuse you,

Whole notes at 148 bpm should be equal. The only "odd" divisions occur at fractions of the measure. So, at 148bpm, whole note of delay comes to 1622ms. The division beyond that should be simple enough.
yeah, well put, if you set your delay at 1622ms then you'd get a bounce at the tempo of the hi hat,
still to me that is an eighth note,
