I always love asking our special guest artists what drum groove had the biggest influence on their playing and overall sound. Funny enough, the groove Anika brought up is from one of my favorite drummers as well: Jeff Porcaro!

Now I know what you’re thinking… “Oh it’s the Rosanna Shuffle!” – but it’s actually from the song “These Chains” by Toto. It’s a shuffle groove as well, however it’s a slight variation from the classic shuffle you’re probably used to hearing.

What’s one groove that influenced YOU?
