Playing Shuffle Grooves
DRUMS, Multimedia tutorials, Rhythm, How 2 Play Drums
A shuffle is a ternary or triplet rhythm/feel which consists in playing only the first and third eighth note of a triplet. In this case we also speak of “swung eighths”. Swung eighth notes can be played with all four limbs. Thus, grooves are conferred a range of different sounds. You can find the shuffle or swing feel in blues as well as in rock. This course provides a video demonstration example, three technical exercises with their corresponding recordings, as well as seven drum grooves you can play along to backing tracks.
