    Petrillo-Hands, Grooves, Fills

    Ok, so i am trying to work my way through this book. But, I need some help. In the "Grooves" section, there are notations that I do not understand. For instance, on page 32 the rhythm chart RC1 has a G-7, D-11, Bb, and Eb noted. What do these refer to? Thanks to anyone who can help.
