"the d word" {pt2} {braxton/babyface cover} played by groovemaster. "groove drumming is all about laying down the foundation for the the other instrumentation/voices. When playing your grooves,it is very important to play using "dynamics", allowing the music in it's entirety to blend properly. I record my grooves in such a way that you will always be able to hear and feel everything else that's going on around the drum lines/patterns. ~Groovemaster~
