Default Re: Most amazing groove by Simon Phillips! ( video inside )

This is an updated version of something he did in one of his DCI videos. I'm not saying it's easy, but it's more connected than you might think. Here's how part of it goes together.
The left hand and the feet are playing groups of 3 16ths, but the left hand is going around the 4 octobans. Then with the right hand he's playing a kick snare pattern with the gong bass drum. The whole thing is moving at the same rate/tempo though. What makes it extra tricky is how long the whole pattern plays before it all lines up the same way again. I hope that makes some kind of sense. Check out his DCI video for a "slower" version of it.
Play on drummer.... JD
