so true - my status "deep in the groove" pretty much tells you where my sensibilities lie. I am so obsessed over time and groove that any fluctuations really upset me. I'm a big follower of many of the names you and Bo followed (just listened to the Meters earlier this week!) so I definitely know what I need to do.All I can say is that you have to feel the groove and be absorbed in it. Just watch a few Bernard Purdie videos. You can see it in his mannerism and the way he talks when he is behind his kit. He vocalizes it and moves to the groove that he is absorbed in.
You have to feel the beat and the groove that heavy. Hewitt, your location status says you're "Deep in the Groove" and I'll tell you what, like Bo is saying about emulating, Bernard Purdie is certainly one to emulate when you're talking about "Deep in the Groove".
