Here's a lead sheet for Herbie Hancock's "Sleeping Giant".

The sample percussion pattern at the beginning is not transcribed from the actual recording, but proposed as a sample Afro 12/8 pattern. The metric feel of the piece is somewhat ambiguous; in some places I've written the 12/8 meter as 6/4, which are mathematically equal, although phrased differently. How do you guys break this down?

Best, Ville
