Groove essentials

How to work with groove essentials? Is it better to systematically play from first groove to the last groove (with variations) or randomly pick a groove and/ or variations and play them?

From what I understand, the book is not in an east to hard format.

If you feel like you are having trouble with a later groove, it may be beneficial to start from the beginning.

If you bought the book to learn a specific groove, learn that one (obviously).

I think that if you bought the book just because, go from front to back.

If you bought it for a certain groove and need to learn it for a gig, go to that one.

I think it mostly is... Seems to be organized by style, then within each style, things get more complex, again, generally speaking.

Depends where you are...i started with essentials 1 first to last with a bit of jumping around for the fun of it. I am finding essentials 2 to be a lot harder...i am using the cd that came with 1, his exclamations are excellent.

What I've been doing with my teacher in the 1st book and now the 2nd is starting at the beginning of each section, and going through learning all the grooves and variations and playing them with the tracks.
