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
