    Discount Oakley Sunglasses Karriem Riggins: Cheap Oakley Sunglasses Clyde Stubblefield is one of my favorite drummers. He is so undeniably funky. There are so many reasons why this break is so fresh. One of the main reasons I love this break is how Clyde used ghost notes in this pattern. That’s what makes it so funky. The placement of those rhythms makes him such a great drummer. I incorporate that into my drum machine programming and playing. It adds another element to beat-making.

    Cheap Oakleys Karriem Riggins: I was introduced to Billy Squier’s music through Run-DMC. This song taught me that less is more. This is a very simple pattern but it can rock a party all night. The mic placement and mix of these drums is classic. Hearing this definitely inspired me to get deeper into recording the room and find the the right position and placement of the mic.

    Replica Oakley Sunglasses Fake Oakley Sunglasses Karriem Riggins: Roy Haynes is one of my favorite jazz drummers. He’s played with people like Chick Corea, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, and Stan Getz so I was so surprised to find this funk record by him! AND for $6 when I was in high school. This song shows how versatile he is. One of my all time favorite grooves/drummers! Cheap Oakleys

    Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Karriem Riggins: Al Green Records all have a signature sound. I love pretty much everything that he put out. Drummer Al Jackson Jr. had a really hip way of tuning his snare. I’m very intrigued by the sound he got from the drums. This song has positive vibes!

    Oakley Sunglasses Cheap Karriem Riggins: Bernard “Pretty” Purdie played drums on this classic break. There are so many hip-hop classics with this break. Purdie is all about BIG pocket and his bass drum pattern has such a hump. Not only have I sampled this break, I’ve also practiced to it to try to cop the feeling in it.

    Replica Oakley Sunglasses Karriem Riggins: If I’m not mistaken, Ernie Isley played drums on this song. When I first heard it I was amazed by how hip the hi-hat pattern was over such a simple groove. This break inspired me to program drums with the same type of simplicity. Simple and straight funky!

    Cheap Oakley Sunglasses Karriem Riggins: Replica Oakleys Zigaboo Modeliste played drums in this group. He’s a HUGE influence on me. There’s a distinct hump that drummers have in New Orleans and a lot of it is inspired by Zigaboo’s second-line funk. Ridiculous pattern and how he rides the bell of his cymbal is crazy!

He’s another HUGE pocket player and major influence on me. I’ve taken wide open snare and hi-hats from this song many times. Classic drummer!!! Cheap Ray Bans

      very interesting topic ! Karriem’s contribution on dilla’s beat is mostly underrated (he used a lot of tricks on dilla’s drums like adding bongo sounds on the top of snares to make ‘em more bouncy i.e. “The Clapper” wet drums on “Rico Suave Bossa Nova” etc ….).

      **would be cool to give the same subject w/ infamous beat-heads like Diamond D, T-Ray, Marley Marl, Lord Ness…what’s your position on that note ? #I’m juss sayin…peace

      No surprise he's on those Zigaboo Grooves!! The Meters are the Truth.
