This groove is a milestone for many drummers as it requires technical facitlity, coordinated independence, dynamic control and connection to the pulse. This is a great track to work on your Porcaro shuffle with some added phrasing allowing you to stretch out in the set-ups. I've tried to differentiate my parts across the different sections to give the arrangement shape whilst ensuring that I remain tasteful without overplaying.

I'm available for sessions and drum lessons in person from my studio in Birmingham (UK) or online via Skype and Zoom.
My good friend, the uber talented Nathan Williams, wrote this tune entitled 'Thinking of Jeff' as one of his drum play-along tracks which are available here.
