tracks for drummers & percussionists


These tracks are a bit more challenging than EASY GROOVE PACK and INTERMEDIATE GROOVE PACK. You've got 2 swing tracks that zip along at mm 200 and 240, plus a samba at mm 200. Keeping a steady 6/8 feel on All Blues Changes is trickier than you might think. Then there's a track that goes back and forth between swing and latin grooves, and your first foray into 5/4. If you've come this far, you won't need a click track for these.
