Steve Jordan is one of the greatest drummers of our time. Here is a tribute to his amazing grooves.
Half of the transcribed beats are from his DVD ‘The Groove Is Here’, which I have watched a thousand times and is a must have for every drummer.
The second half of the transcriptions is a collection of grooves from records Steve has played on.
17” Hi-Hats are highly recommended 🙂
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.
This is part of my ‘Groove Masters’ mini-series. A few more are on their way (and drop me a line if you have any request). For instance, I have also done a Pdf about Vinnie Colaiuta, Jeff Porcaro and John JR Robinson, which you can download here:
