Groove Drumming Studies
The "Developing a Groove™" Series
The Virtuoso Drummer website is proud to present a series of Study Flows which analyze, interpret and teach specific, well known recorded drumming grooves.
As the series progresses, the plan is to offer a wide array of styles and "feels", all the while corresponding to recognized musical recordings.
Comprehensive Note-for-Note Memorization is NOT the Solution to Successful Drumming Learning Progress
When one follows a study flow in the "Developing a Groove™" Series, the original intent of the recorded performance is learned and embellished. The drummer will gain the ability to expand upon and improvise the original groove while studying the basis of the rhythms involved.
Developing an array of rhythmic grooves, including the ability to improvise on the groove's basics, is most certainly a fast track to drumming virtuosity.
"The defining element of virtuosity is the performance ability of the musician in question, who is capable of displaying feats of skill well above the average performer."
