Creative Groove Concepts

Gergo Borlai shares several exciting concepts that will add creative spice to your grooves. Includes mixed stickings and polyrhythms.

In this pack, Gergo will teach you several intermediate to advanced concepts that you can put to creative use on the drums. Beginning with a syncopated stepped hi-hat groove (influenced by Steve Gadd), Gergo also shows an interesting application of polyrhythmic accents to an alternating-hand triplet groove, and finishes the pack with two creative double-stroke sticking grooves. Be sure to switch between the video and the notation as you practice to get a complete understanding of these concepts.

Here are the lessons that appear in this pack:

  1. Stepped Hi-Hat Groove
  2. Adding the Ride & Toms
  3. Hi-Hat Polyrhythm Groove
  4. Adding Ride to Polyrhythm Groove
  5. Double-Stroke Groove 1
