Essential Grooving

Here is an amazing performance by Carlos Daniel Guevara performing “Groove 84” from the book “Groove Essentials” by Tommy Igoe. According to Carlos he learned this rhythm from Afro Cuban music, sometimes called Naningo or Bembe. He adds, “I think that the main challenge is to keep the groove and make it feel alive. This groove is based on a 6/8 pattern, but to start learning this groove you can start doing a double paradiddle with your metronome set to 6/8 slow.”
