How to Build Drum Grooves Over Bass Lines

An Easy Guide for Expanding Your Rhythmic Vocabulary

Series: Drum Instruction Publisher: Hal Leonard Format: Softcover Audio Online Author: Alan Arber

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. Includes over 200 audio tracks!
