The world of rhythm can be as complex as you want it to be. Some drummers like to keep things stripped down and simple, while others prefer to load up the bar and keep busy. There’s a time and place for each, so it’s good to have the facility to be able to pull out one or another at the drop of a hat.
Today Camille Bigeault is here to teach you groove illusions. A groove illusion is a pattern or groove that the listener doesn’t expect and causes them to second guess the time signature. Sound like fun? Download the sheet music, get behind your kit, and follow along!
