Great idea - on the basis I'd be keen to use any tools which would help me improve my playing.
For Groove Library newbies like myself, I suspect there may be value in an idiots guide to getting started - What gear's needed, how to go about using, then ultimately creating anything that might be of value to anyone else here....?
Anyone up for that?

'Groove Library' conjures up great literal images.
“Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

This is something I'm really looking forward to. When I first joined the forum I was surprised that the technique and theory section was such a baron wasteland. Perhaps this section will be BCs redemption.

lol - Isn't theory and Technique a baron wasteland for most bass players (you know who you are...)

PEDANT ALERT!

Baron Wasteland sounds like a character from a bad novel.

I suspect the word we want here is "barren".

Okay, here's what's missing:

World music section....
Unusual meter section.....

The world music section should be geographically subdivided, and the funny-meter section should cross-reference the other entries (most often, this'll be 6/8 dances from whereverywhere) -

Thus:

Unusual Meter -> Simple Time -> /4

2/4 3/4 5/4 etc.


World -> South America -> Brazil

Afoxe, Afro-Brazilian 6/8, Bahiao, Bossa Nova, Choro, Frevo, Forro, Maracatu, Samba, Samba Reggae, etc., etc.

Within each of those styles, we could have a couple of examples of each sort of music, a little discussion of the common theoretical aspects from each and how their application can affect groove (i.e. clave 'modulation' in Cuba, or swapping upbeeats in Jamaica).

And we can have similarly long entries to Brazil for Cuba, Jamaica, Argentina, Indonesia, Bali, China, Japan, India (subdivided to Karnatka and Hindustani) and so on and on and on.


It must be worth it! Even Baron VonWasteland's heinous plans should not put us off!

This area isn't used much, is it? Perhaps it needs re-thinking or re-invigorating a bit.

I would love to hear a couple of examples of bossa nova with a little discussion of theoretical aspects. Can anyone help? I'm looking at Nature Boy and Song for My Father in particular, but would be grateful for any pointers on getting the groove.

That sounds like a lot of work ,can't we just post something as "world/ethnic" ? What if i used a tabla plus a djembe in a loop?Why Does everything have to be so catergorised i mean.
