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. This is an exemplar of African 6:4 cross-rhythm, where two simultaneous meters (12/8 and 6/4) intertwine into a polyrhythmic tapestry.

Best, Ville
