Ep. 73 Tap Dance Notes

Weekly Explorations in Tap Dance Land

I don’t know, I’ve been listening to more Rock & Roll recently and so maybe this groove is a function of that. It’s not that the other grooves aren’t as meaty, but this has something different on it. The strength of the accents, the articulation of the other notes, and the dynamics of the break all yell. This groove comes at you, rather than invites you in. It uses all the same things other grooves do, STOMPS for strong accents, RIFFS (or thirds or slurps if you like) for fills, and some rhythmic play for creating tension. It just seems to have an edge. I guess I’m a little surprised that this came out of me. Then again, that’s a good sign that new things are still possible!
