This video teaches 20 great grooves that fit with all kinds of music. I assume you're a complete beginner, so I start with a detailed demonstration of basic technique. Then I move on to the heart of the video, which is clear, step-by-step instruction, with each pattern shown in side view, player’s eye view, and slow motion.
I also show you how the grooves work by playing along with music in a variety of styles, from rock to pop to funk to folk. And throughout the video--which is over an hour long--the rhythm almost never stops, so you can always play along!
As a bonus, I explain basic rhythmic concepts that will help you understand the grooves and help you communicate with other musicians. If you want to see the patterns on paper, a PDF file is included that you can print out with charts of all the patterns.
