Welcome to this lesson from the team at DIME ONLINE!
The lesson is designed to help you improve your playing and also give you an idea of what you can expect from the courses at DIME ONLINE.
Hi mikedolbear.com viewers – I’m Paul Elliott, and this month our lesson is intended help you with your sixteenth-note groove playing in a variety of different styles. To do this, we’ll focus on the ride pattern and how it can be varied with different accents.
The goal for this is to bring creativity and variety to what might be some simple, straight-forward patterns in rock, funk, pop or reggae. This simple exercise should give you a new approach to some of your familiar patterns. Note: always remember to not let embellishments get in the way of the actual groove and therefore become counter-productive.
