“Nasty Groove #1” is a linear funk beat, inspired by the likes of Dennis Chambers, David Garibaldi, Vinnie Colaiuta and Mike Clark.
It’s a very funky beat…make sure that the ghosted notes are very quiet…that is one of the keys to making these types of grooves sound great.

Have at it. Below are two videos: the first is me playing the groove at a “normal” tempo, followed by a very slooooowww version.
