**Wake n Break No. 1953 - A Linear Groove With An Anticipated Pickup And An "Empty" One**

- Thread starter kindbeats
- Start date

Notation:

Today's wake 'n break is a lumbering two bar, sixteenth note triplet (counting "1 trip let & trip let") driven backbeat that has what I'm referring to as a "winding down" accelerando on a tamborim. When I say "winding down", imagine the sound a spinning coin makes as it gets closer and closer to stopping. Taking the foot ostinato first, our bass drum is falling on "1&" and "3&" while our hi-hats are being chicked on "2&" and "4&". Looking at the tamborim next, we have sixteenth note triplets on "2 trip let & trip let", "3 trip let & trip let", "4 trip let & trip let" in the first bar. In the second bar, we have notes falling on "1 trip let & trip let" and on "2 trip let", and then our accelerando starts on the "&" of 2 and ends on 4. Last but not least, our snare drum has accented notes on 2 and 4 in both bars, as well as a little ruff that leads into the bass drum on 1. As always, I hope you dig it and much love!

Today's wake 'n break is a bit of a "swunk" groove (a term that was used by the late great Kim Plainfield), which is basically a hybrid of swing and funk. This groove is also played open handed. Starting with the bass drum first, we have notes falling on 1 and on "4&". Looking at the snare drum next, we have notes falling on "1e", 3e", and on "4&". Moving along to the hi-hats next, we have notes falling on the "&a" of 1, the "&a" of 2, the "a" of 3, and on the "e" and "a" of 4, with openings on the "a" of 1, the "a" of 2, and on the "a" of 3. Next, our tom is falling on "2e". Last but not least, our hi-hats are being chicked on the "&" of 1, on "2&", and on "3&". As always, I hope you dig it and much love! Sorry for the lack of notation but I ran out of manuscript paper. I'll be adding notations again in a day or two.
