Gavin Harrison: Grooving in 3’s, 4’s, and 5’s
Gavin Harrison is best known for his unique grooves that play around with time signatures, subdivisions, and different groupings. Today he’s here to teach one of his most Gavin-esque grooves we’ve ever heard! This beat has each of your limbs playing a different grouping.
The hi hat foot takes care of the group of 4 as it plays on ever quarter note. The kick drum plays every third sixteenth note in relation to your hi hat, and your ride cymbal will be playing an over-the-bar pattern that revolves around a grouping of 5. Add a snare drum on the back beat and we got a groove!
As with his Paradiddle Challenge, make sure you have each part down before adding in the next.
