Unique Half Time Shuffles

by SJDrummer on 07/10/2012 | 13,580 Views | 6 Comments

I wanted to put together a few lesson/tutorial videos about some of my favorite grooves. Here are two of my all-time favorite grooves, which also happened to be unique forms of the classic half-time shuffle. First is Jason McGerr's half-time shuffle from "Grapevine Fires," followed by Darren King's chorus groove from the song, "You Are Mine."My Setup:Pearl Session Custom (12" 14" toms)22" KickBenny Greb Snare 13" x 5.75"Sabian HHX Evo 18" o zone crashHHX Evo 17" crash21" AAX Stage RideVintage Sabian Hand Hammered Dark Hats 14"

Billy Ashbaugh: Paradiddle Groove Workout #4

by billy ashbaugh on 11/13/2010 | 65,703 Views | 10 Comments

For today’s lesson we’re going to expand our rhythms for the kick drum in this groove setting. We’re still playing a steady flow of 16th notes phrased as Paradiddles with accents on beats 2 and 4.  The idea is to download the PDF file that has 12 one bar patterns to practice playing on the kick drum. These rhythms are getting busier so it’s also a great workout for your kick drum as well. Enjoy!

Billy Ashbaugh: Hi-Hat Up Beat Groove Idea #1

by billy ashbaugh on 10/30/2010 | 14,843 Views | 3 Comments

Today’s lesson will take a look at playing the & or up beat pattern on the hi-hat during a groove. For now the snare will continue to play a nice solid rim shot for beats 2 & 4. This can feel a little strange if it’s your first time trying this. We’re going to ease into this by only playing 8th note figures on the kick drum for now. Don’t forget to download the PDF file for 12 one bar grooves to practice. Enjoy!
