In today´s video I play three simple eighth note grooves. These grooves are simple to play but yet can be used in many pop or rock settings. These are the first grooves we look at here, and I encourage you to practice them using a metronome (even if I did not in the video, and I progressively play each groove a bit faster than the one before :-)
Here are the grooves notated:
It is very beneficial to practice all four variations. I must admit that for the longest time I did not practice leading with my left hand, and I believe that can be heard in this video. But I do practice that way now, and I believe that even if we lead with our right hand at gigs it is great to practice both ways.
