    These are fun. Best app, and the Ribbecke guitar digs it too.

    Love these loops! I recently used the ones for Freddie Freeloader and Watermelon Man in a live set. The Arabic and Turkish grooves are fun to noodle over, too.

    Totally agree about Drum Genius. And you and your Halfling sound terrific.

    Also want to give a shout out to Genius Jamtracks.

    Some of the grooves are odd or lopsided groupings of 2s and 3s, patterns like 3-4-4 or 2-2-3-2, etc.

    BTW, nice playing and great tone!

    Drum Genius is very cool!

    For some rhythmic ear-training, also check out Krantz' "Humanome!"

    Superb noodling indeed. Drums quite inspiring but bring to mind that a very good friend of mine is also an excellent drummer-who once had a tiff with Al di Meola without ever drumming for him. But he doesn’t want to play drums and may well stay in this state for a few years. Good drummers bring such a great structure to a piece!

    I've used Drum Genius for years, after it was independently recommended by two of my jazz piano teachers for practicing unusual time signatures and general time feel. I recommend getting the full set of patterns. One thing I like to do is to capture a drum pattern in my DAW (Logic Pro), add my own bass lines for particular tunes, and loop as backing for working on tunes on piano or guitar or both. These drum loops have a feel that I find to be hip and inspiring....Alternatively, it doesn't get much easier than pulling out your phone, picking a pattern from Drum Genius and having a great rhythmic feel to accompany whatever you're working on with your instrument.

    I just bought a Digitech Tri, I have a Boss drum machine and a 404 sampler. Guess I’m getting the drum genius app as well. This thing called drums…..
