Special GROOVES - Tunes with Trademark Grooves

Postby Juan Expósito » Fri Jun 10, 2016 9:14 am

I couldn´t resist and I edited the Unboxing Gretsch video, capturing some grooves that I could listen for days.
And this could be a good place for putting some of that contagious, powerful and tasteful grooves...
The grooves I tend to love the most are those not very complex but with that grace, taste, dynamics or inesperate note that makes you say "yeah", then if it has some good melody or bass/guitar riff you have the groove party.
Those 1-2 bars that when you hear them you want to learn/play them.

For the good of the thread, please don´t post tunes just because they have a good groove...The thread would go to 10.000 pages and the interest would go to Zero.
EDIT: lets post tune´s grooves that you can listen 1-2 bars and you know what song is, even if they are played alone, without other instruments...(Rossana, 50 ways...)
It doesn´t mean that the song has to start with that groove, although in many cases it´s the case.

And the test would be this:
Someone play the groove with the drums, without any other instruments, with a different drumset, sound...and YOU KNOW WHAT TUNE IS !!!
:D

SO, OFFTOPIC: Vinnie first, in a very not-song context, just testing the kit with some grooves.
If they were grooves for some commercial tunes they would had been very recognizable.
My favourite is Groove 3 (Million Dollar Tom Note) and Groove 6 (Bonham in the House)
I enjoyed a lot doing this.
Vinnie for President !!
