One – two – you know what to do!
THE AMEN BREAK
This is one of the most sampled and versatile grooves and works great at many tempos. This is a must for the Toolbox!
THE PURDIE SHUFFLE
This is one of the most flowing and musical sounds a drummer can make. The sound file doesn’t do it justice but it’ll help with practice. No one grooves like Bernard Purdie!
TURN IT LOOSE
This is a timeless funk classic; not to be played hard but with finesse and balance around the kit. Please listen to the original recording for the right feel.
