Jazz Standard Grooves
DRUMS, Multimedia tutorials, Styles, How 2 Play Drums
This assortment of jazz drum grooves is inspired by some of the greatest standards belonging to this musical style. Within these grooves you will, of course, be able to experiment with the traditional ride cymbal pattern, using it in different tempi and usually accompanying a walking bass. You will notice that jazz brushes playing ghost notes can top off the ride cymbal line, while the bass drum, for the most part, softly and discreetly marks the first beat. This course places ten jazz standard drum grooves and the appropriate breaks with their corresponding recordings at your disposal along with just as many “made-to-measure” backing tracks that you can use to play along to – as though you were in a band!
