I'm new to the forum so I'm not used to see a lot of answers and reply to all. I really appreciate all the comments and I read all of them. I'm trying to find my own sound. So I posted this quote in the forum. Basically I asked in order to know if you have any practice routine to develop your felling and groove. But that's something that's really personal. Basically I'm trying to play all my grooves as well as other exercises more relax as a lot of people here said. But it's going to be a long and fun journey.It's only been a little over one day, but I hope the OP comes back and gets into the groove of this thread.

Thanks for you advices! I have several exercises I've been working on with HH in triplets or 16 notes or 8 Notes and I'm trying to accent the tempo or the contratempo on the edge of the cymbal and the other notes playing softer. It's not straight so it has more dynamics and I'm trying to be more relaxed in order play smoothly.Play it slow for a long time. Play different versions placing the notes slightly different places, triplets sixteenth a rights. Then play it cut time, after a while play it double cut time. Once you can smoothly go between all three versions. Break it down play it with different feet, move the left foot to keep time on the up beat, down beat, back beat etc. Practice on different percussion arrangements. Arrange complimentary patterns, practice those. Add guiros and wash boards. Learn melodies and motif that highlight the groove.
Always something to do to work on the groove.
