Technique by Ryan Carver // December 02 2008
Holiday Grooves

Listening to music is a key part of making music. It is important to listen to grooves from other drummers and all styles. Groove School is a collection of some great grooves from various artists. Each groove can inspire you, and open up different ideas and possibilities. This month has some solid grooves. It’s all in how these great drummers play the groove that makes it happen. Listen to the feel that each one generates. Listen to the drum sounds, the way the hi-hat is hit, and the bass lines.
