Blowing everybody away with his technical dexterity, fantastic groove, tone and his sheer musicality, Steve Jenkins has a gift for putting notes in his own special place in the pocket. In this course, Steve walks you through a trailblazing mix of modern groove concepts that feature muted, thumbed, popped and strummed notes. As with many of these techniques, there’s a lot of information to process, so take it easy and don’t worry about the tempo initially, just get everything up and running. The superb Kenny Grohowski propels this course along on drums, locking in with Steve in a typically solid fashion. If you can sit in the pocket as tight as these guys then you’ll be doing just fine.

  • All about Steve's unbelievable slap technique.
  • How to syncopate different rhythms to produce a monster groove.
  • The importance of visualising these concepts within the context of a song.
  • How you can start to smoothly deliver your own musical ideas.
  • And much, much more!
