"dr moy" {jeff lorber cover} played by groovemaster {unedited} http://www.reverbnation.com/russellaworrell "It's ALWAYS easier to play syncopation on the drums in a r-section when the bass and/or guitar lines are repetitive. When I'm playing hat/snare syncopation, it must make sense, and be compatible with the phrasing of the bass and/or guitar parts. Secondly, I like to use what I call "syncopated drum fills" (drum fills that don't detach from the groove itself as "regular" fills do.}, to keep the pulse and feel at a steady flow. The key to making this concept and approach a success, is to incorporate this style of syncopated groove drumming WHILE also playing the composition as written using discipline, dynamics...and of course, as I always say...proper placement of syncopation and fills. This video cover basically illustrates the results of my approach to syncopated groove drumming in this situation. Thank you for watching, listening and supporting" ~Groovemaster~ ***using "Flix" vinyl rods
