Drum Tutorial: Practicing Subdivisions

Hey folks!
In this video Warren Hayford demonstrates a quick and easy subdivision exercise. He shows how to take a beat and split it into 2's, 3's, 4's, all the way up to 8's and back down. He begins each subdivided grouping with an accent. The goal of the exercise is to transition between each subdivision as smoothly as possible.

Tracking the guitar solo for "Sweeter Sounds" by @kingstband. Well done, Rheese! Gotta love a Gibson Les Paul for that sweet and smooth sound.

Signal chain: PreSonus Commercial TubePre -- dbx Pro 161 -- 24.4.2 Console -- S-Gear by Scuffham Amps (Roy's Dream setting, with adjustments) = fat guitar solo tone.

Are your guitar tracks missing a little punch? Do your reverbs sound thin and weak?

We use an 1176 style compressor plugin on nearly all of our projects. We're happy to say that we just purchased an 1176 hardware unit at Groove, super excited to use that on future mixes! #success

Waves Audio, Slate Companies, and Universal Audio offer great software versions of 1176.

Check out this quick introduction to the Waves CLA-76 compressor on a Taylor 210ce. The CLA-76 is based on the popular 1176 Peak Limiter originally made by ...

Tonight at midnight we're dropping two singles from Lettuce Prey (Shawn Hatfield & Derek Summers). A lot of emotion and nostalgia involved in this project. Lettuce Prey is a Groove & AGR production, but it is personally one of the best projects I have ever been a part of.

"Leesburg" has some great old school funk elements and the lyric content drops you right in the mid 1990s of our very own Leesburg, Virginia. The groove, style, and explicit use of synth of this track will keep you dancing.

"Task At Hand" rocks you from beginning to end with eye opening craftsmanship on the mic. Derek has an inherent ability to carve lyrics into a beat with all the flow and attitude you'd want.

Seriously, work with Derek!
