The Shuffle

Technique by Chris Brien // January 24 2013
The Shuffle

The shuffle is a pattern too many drummers do not practice, and yet, the shuffle can easily be considered king when it comes to music as a whole. If you cannot shuffle, you excuse yourself from being able to play almost every genre known to drummerkind.

Chris Brien brings us another great lesson on a pattern that takes years to master but can make your playing feel so good.
