Shuffle rhythms are among the most popular of all rhythms and are used extensively in rock, jazz, and blues! Being able to lay down a shuffle rhythm is a must for drummers of all levels! No matter what style of drumming you are doing, at some point, you will be asked to play a shuffle rhythm! In this class, you will learn the shuffle rhythms’ foundational elements, along with some fun, easy to learn shuffle rhythms in the rock, jazz, and blues drumming styles. I have also included a few advanced shuffle rhythms (for those of you familiar with a song called “Rosanna”)!
For teachers, and those who want to fully understand this important rhythm, you will benefit from understanding the notational elements of the rhythm, and the detailed rhythmic foundation of the shuffle rhythm.
