Tommy Igoe presents THE groove encyclopedia for the 21st Century, overflowing with over six hours of music and 88 play-along tracks for drummers of all abilities.

Groove Essentials represents a quantum leap in play-along packages for the developing drummer. Tommy Igoe provides a comprehensive guide to over forty beats, rhythms and styles ranging from Rock and Funk, through Jazz, Hip-Hop and R&B to world and speciality grooves including Calypso, Baiao Samba, Batucada and lots more! Every rhythm is explained in detail, with all required techniques, a full musical context, and two professionally recorded backing tracks featuring some of the hottest musicians of New York City.

Beginning drummers will enjoy playing the simple rock beats with a real band, giving you a chance to play the drums with good, solid time utilizing four-way coordination.
Intermediate drummers will have a chance to tackle some syncopated 16th-note grooves in the funk and R&B sections and also start playing some good, swinging Jazz.
Advanced and professional drummers will find twenty challenging world grooves to master, as well as the opportunity to try an infinite number of different feels on Jazz shuffles, waltzes and more.

Each example is supported by professional-standard charts, and the backing tracks are presented in MP3 format, allowing them to be used on Mac, PC, iPod and portable MP3 systems.
