In this lesson you will be learning some fairly simple groove patterns in 5/8 that involve extending patterns over two bar phrases. At the bottom of the page you will find a list of links to other lessos you may find helpful in learning these parts. Most of the ideas presented on this page will be similar to ideas in both our 5/8 grooves lessons and general concepts.
If at any point you start to struggle with a part, slow them down and build the part up slowly.
- Learn the grooves above up to a tempo of at least 130bpm.
- Use the given parts as a starting point for building your own versions of these grooves.
- Create some 4 bar phrases in simple 5/8 where fills are applied.
