Ask Damian Erskine: My Sense of Groove
I get a lot of emails asking about how to play certain grooves from some of my tunes. I have a new book coming out that deals with many of my techniques, and I explain them in the same way drummers explain drum rudiments. The book will include an mp3 CD with over 100 tracks of all of the exercises at different tempos.
I thought I’d include a two page preview (PDF download) along with the corresponding audio examples for No Treble readers to check out.
The first page is simply the legend for my notation (explaining which fingers to use and on what string to play the note written).
The second page has three grooves from different songs of mine written out.
