An Easy Guide for Expanding Your Rhythmic Vocabulary
Series: How to Series
Format: Softcover & Online Audio
This addition to the “How To...” series demonstrates how a drummer and bass player should interact with and respond to each other in different musical styles.
Each section of the book presents a bass guitar line in the style of a specific genre, which is then followed by four different drum grooves. These mini-lessons achieve two goals: 1) they illustrate what a drummer should listen for in a bass line; and 2) they demonstrate how to build and execute proper drum grooves. Each exercise builds a drum groove by orchestrating which drum(s) can be played around that rhythm. You can use each exercise as a building block that leads to the fourth (and final) groove of each section. ©2020, 48 pages
