Clips drom my iPod playlist to practice different shuffle feels.
I've selected diffent songs that have shuffle feel,created a playlist, and now I have about 2 hour long practice routine aimed just to improve my shuffles. To have them on the same playlist helps (at least me) surprisinly lot. This way I don't have to keep reaching for the mp3-player all the time, and it also helps me to keep my focus and practice longer.
The names of these beats vary, sometimes you hear them called this and sometimes that, but these are what I call them. 1) Double shuffle or 2 handed shuffle (slow) 2) I really don't have name for this. Something you can hear on old jump blues-records or maybe on a Bryan Setzer track. 3) Porcaro shuffle or Burdie shuffle. Most often halftime version is called Burdie shuffle, and this one Porcaro shuffle. 4) Back shuffle of Flat tire shuffle. Sounds like a flat tire to me. 5) and 6) Shuffle with some bass drum variations. 7) Pretty much the same as 2) but up tempo. Very challenging to get the left hand accent happening. Whew!
The kit is Dw Jazz series (20", 12" and 14"), the snare is Dw VLT 13" x 6". Cymbals are Zildjian 14" New Beats from the 70's and 22" K Constantinople light.
