Linear Groove Exercise

As with a previous groove, this one looks and feels like it would be hard to apply in a musical setting. But, the more you smooth it out, emphasize the backbeat and just relax into it, you'll find that it can fit a lot more places than you think.

Once mastered, try playing this groove along with a handful of recordings from a variety of styles and at different tempos. For example, pick a track from the Fray, Metallica, Count Basie, Frank Sinatra and Beethoven, and make it work.

Happy drumming!
