  • Dedicated chapters on groove principles for Pop, Rock, and Metal.
  • 150 groove and fill examples with screenshots to get you started. You will learn how these examples were created so you can come up with your own grooves by applying the principles laid out in the book. This gives you literally endless possibilities for your own drum tracks.
  • Detailed instructions on how to make grooves sound realistic and just like a human would have played them. This part of the book covers how to alter QuantizationandVelocities effectively to make your drum beats feel as natural as possible.
