Soul with a Capital "S" - part 2

This is the second part of an article that was originally published in Batteur Magazine in 1997. Here I show you how to further develop the pattern that was demonstrated before.

Example 1
Again, one of the patterns seen in the previous part.

16-bar Groove Exercise
This exercise serves the purpose of integrating the pattern seen in Example 3.
Each bar is played twice.

This exercise can be worked on with my innovative Pattern Morphing concept.

16 patterns can become 256 patterns of 2 measures.
