An interactive groove experience for all level drummers with rhythm tracks that feature some of New York City's top musicians. Works in conjunction with the best-selling Grove Essentials DVD. For beginning drummers: simple rock beats with a real band feel; for intermediate drummers: syncopated, 16th-note grooves as well as jazz/swing feels; for advanced drummers: challenging world grooves, as well as jazz shuffles, jazz waltzes and R&B feels. Additionally, you'll find 3 Global Tour tracks that are 15-minute journeys through all the grooves and feels you've learned. The CD features all of the rhythm tracks in MP3 format, so that they can be downloaded into your computer (MAC or PC) and moved to your iPod!, or any portable MP3 player. The disc is also playable in all MP3-capable CD and DVD players.
