Jeff Porcaro is one of the greatest drummers ever lived. This is a little tribute to his incredible groove.
I’ve worked hard to put together this interactive Pdf which includes 40 of the best beats Jeff has played during his amazing career.
These grooves and transcriptions are from his DVD ‘Instructional DVD For Drums’, and also from his recordings, mainly with Toto.
The DVD is a masterpiece, you learn so much just watching Jeff explain what he does and play with his effortless and relaxed approach. I recommend that you get a copy of it and watch it at least a thousand times :).
I believe studying such great masters is a must for every drummer, no matter what kind of music you play.
So let’s get ready to groove hard!
Here you can download the Pdf:
You can click on each groove in the Pdf to go to its specific time in the YouTube video where I play each example.
I hope you enjoy it!
