[PDF] Slow Pop Grooves

A strong sign of a great drummer/percussionist is when they can play slow tempo grooves and make them feel good - without speeding up, slowing down, adding crazy fills and over complicating it. Believe it or not - this is a hard thing to do! This lesson teaches you how to play a well-known pop ballad groove with 3 step-by-step exercises. These exercises also incorporate many Cajon rudiments, including ghost notes, bass-slide, doubles and different co-ordination alternatives. Also included are some bonus fill notations transcribed from an improvised performance on the video. Make sure you watch the video too so you can enjoy a live jam between guitar and Cajon to understand how your new knowledge is applied in a musical setting.
