Good article on Bernard Purdie

Interesting. I would have never thought to use my fingers for ghost notes in the cross stick version of the Purdie shuffle. Cool. Learn something new every day. It shows it in the video clip in the article.


Thanks for posting this!

It is so exciting to see newer drummers trying to replicate the Purdie shuffle or create their own interpretation. I always liked his shuffle on Babylon Sisters. Keith Carlock does a good job recreating that beat.
