Artist: Stanton Moore
Track: Big 'Uns Get The Ball Rolling
This track, curiously titled 'Big 'Uns Get the Ball Rolling', is a great example of using a groove as the basis for your solo. There are some flashy moments but the emphasis never strays far from good old fashioned groove based playing. He spends a large portion of the solo on the three main voices for any groove drummer: Kick, Snare and Hi-Hats. As always, start slowly and be aware of the push on the 'and' of 1 on every-other bar. For further listening try anything by the Meters and their irrepressible groove king Zigaboo Modeliste. Below is the transcription as well as my attempt from a few years ago.
