Watch the Tom Groove Time online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from 50 Pro Bass Grooves You MUST Know
Groove # 24 is taken from a song on first Solo release "Radio Free Albemuth". It's a quasi-out laid back tom-tom kind of a groove, and I start by playing with a muted tone, and then open it up as the groove grows, and on the record, play the final few choruses with my thumb. Try this yourself, and check out how you can use different ways of hitting the string, and therefore achieving different tone and feels, to give the groove some movement over time. It's okay to lay this one back in the beat to let the groove settle.
