Our book „Backpack Grooves – Rock“ is about fundamental and essential rock drum grooves that no groove backpack should be without. Included are half-time, midtempo, swing and uptempo grooves divided into intro, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, bridge, fills and endings. There are several variations for each song part.

Inspired by great and solid rock songs, these grooves and fills have been compiled. 

We have prepared this extensive collection as part of the groove studies. And because rock grooves should always be with you (in your backpack), we named it „Backpack Grooves – Rock“.
