like a professional, easy Rock- and Pop-Playalongs for beginners on
The extension of the series for Drummers: instalment of 'easy Grooves 1' - especially for beginners!
Records (Berlin) especially founded the 'Groove it' label in order to
supply active musicians with groovy playbacks (playalongs) produced on
a high level:
The CD offers the perfect accompanying band for
all drummers that like to practice with a 'bandfeeling'. In order to
make it easy for beginners, a metronom, which can be heard on the left
canal, has consciously been added, and if necessary can also be turned
off with the pan-control of the stereo. In response to a lot of demands
the volume of the clicktrack has been raised.
You can also find a bonus-track
with vocals (Patrick Quintin and Jörg Sieghart)
on the CD which is available as a version just for
listening and as a playback-version to play along
This accompanying band is 'irresistible' as it stays
on beat (metronom numbers are published in the booklet!)
which allows you not only to practice the grooves,
but also the precise Timing (timekeeper) .
The CD has an ingenious structure: apart from various
Rock-Pop and ballad-Grooves (Playalongs) there are
Drum-Groove-examples to each playback.
The Play Alongs are counted
two beats with the metronom so that you can already
practice a couple of short Intro-Fills to get into
the right feeling. In order to indicate the endings
clearly the speed of the metronom has been doubled
by the end of the tracks in the last round. To make
sure that the drummer can concentrate on the groove
of the other instruments nearly all solo-voices have
been left out. But there are a few short Solo-spots
(guitar, saxophone, piano) and instrumental topics
which give relief to the whole thing.
The CD has been produced
on the suggestion of engaged drummers, music traders
as well as percussion teachers. We distributed samples
to traders and music schools before the publication
of the CD and earned some very positive resonances.
Tunesday Records wants to fulfil the demand for a
special Pop/Rock-Playalong-CD for percussion-beginners
with this CD. The total length of the CD is 76:32
minutes which is only 2 seconds less than what you
could get with the glasmaster.
This CD is a must go for all percussion-beginners
who would like to improve their groove-skills or who
simply want to give their enjoyment of playing a lift!
The CD was produced by Martin Häne and is the
fourth CD of our series 'Playbacks for drummer'. The
first CD (Vol.1) of the series was produced by the
Groove it-publisher Jörg Sieghart who earned
some great press comments with the CD 'Playbacks for
Drummers Vol.1' as well as with his CDs 'Playbacks
for Improvisation' (for leadinstruments). (see below)
