Good God, Gadd’s Groove’s Great!

Thanks for the ‘50 Ways To leave Your lover’ play­a­long in the Sum­mer is­sue of Rhythm. What a groove, so in­ter­est­ing and in­no­va­tive! It’s so great to find a drum groove so in­te­gral yet so in­di­vid­ual – leave it to Steve Gadd to nail it with such feel as well. A real bench­mark and proof that a drum­mer can con­trib­ute great licks and stamp their own per­son­al­ity on a track.

Pete Ri­ley did a great job as al­ways of break­ing down Gad d’ s bril­liant sig­na­ture groove, a real gem of a drum track that’ s so dis­tinc­tive and so per­fectly judged. It was a bit of a shock when I re­alised we’ d never done the track be­fore! So please, if you’ ve got any sug­ges­tions of awe­some drum tracks you’ d like to see Pete break­down for you, get in touch–even stone-cold clas­sics, it’ s al­ways pos­si­ble we’ ve missed them !– CBu
