Tom Brechtlein: Triplet Hi-Hat Grooves

Hey everybody! Brechtlein here, on the road again, writing to you from Austin, Texas. I’m in the middle of recording Eric Johnson’s CD right now. We’re having a lot of fun.

Anyway, I got an e-mail a while ago (by the way, keep them coming) from somebody asking if I had any grooves with the use of triplets between snare and bass drum. Well, here are some mild, quirky ones between snare, bass, hi-hat, and ride.

And hey folks, don’t hesitate to e-mail me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). If you’d like to know about something, e-mail and I’ll try to give you examples of what you want in my column.
