The second edition of the best-selling original Groove Essentials™ features a DVD with 53 brand new grooves and over 100 variations for intermediate to advanced players! Students will learn the difference between ghost and grace notes (while being encouraged to experiment with both in all six groove “families”) as well as important “go-to” grooves, like the Train and Bo-Diddley beats. For more advanced players and professionals, GE 2.0 introduces the concepts of groove construction, interpretation and manipulation- training drummers to think like musicians in order to maximize their full potential.

The Groove Essentials™ DVD features more than 70 new songs covering 4/4, 2/2, 6/8 and 3/4 time signatures, with three levels of difficulty for 5/4, 7/8 and 9/8 meters. On the 3-hour, 45-minute DVD, Igoe discusses and demonstrates each groove in multiple tempos, alone and with a band, with many patterns shown on both acoustic and on Roland HD-1 and TD-9 electronic drumkits. The grooves span rock, funk, RandB/hip-hop, jazz (sticks and brushes), world/specialty, extreme tempos, all-purpose, hybrid, rideless, classic and odd-meters.

igoe-ge2-book-1The companion Play-Along book and CD contain over 90 tracks, including every song from the DVD in their full-length versions, minus the drums; allowing drummers to expand their skills by playing any of the grooves with a band and recording themselves on audio or video (optional) to help facilitate the learning process.

These tracks also supply a variety of fill-in and soloing opportunities to challenge advanced players. In addition, the book features Igoe’s extended “global tours” that will test even the most seasoned professional’s chops, creativity and stamina and, as a “first of its kind” bonus, there is a full-length orchestral play-along track designed to provide a taste of playing in a full orchestra, complete with multiple moving tempos, dynamics and feels!

Tommy Igoe has had a long career as an in-demand studio and touring drummer but has done his most satisfying and critically acclaimed work as a bandleader. He currently runs two of the country’s most popular music residencies, one in San Francisco, the other in New York and has a fan base that spans the world.

He began drumming at the age of 2, started classical piano at 10 and has gone on to craft a unique and diverse career rooted in performance and education, traveling the world as a sideman with top-shelf Pop and Jazz artists while simultaneously conducting clinics and masterclasses at the world’s most prestigious institutions of education. In 1997, Tommy wrote the drum set book for Disney’s epic Broadway production of the “The Lion King” where he served as principal drummer and associate conductor.

He is the President of Deep Rhythm Music, his recording studio, publishing arm and record label. As an author, Tommy has created three of the best-selling music education titles of the last 10 years including his Groove Essentials series and Great Hands For A Lifetime.
