The effect of the “groove“ in music is palpable—it can be sensed by everyone. The music is felt throughout the body, and you get the irresistible impulse to move or dance. The energy of music transmits itself to each individual as a direct response to the music. Creating this “good feeling“ is the subject of Jost Nickel’s Groove Book. Naturally, the drummer bears the weight of responsibility for generating the groove; in any band, it’s not just what you play that constitutes the groove; rather it is how you play it.
Jost Nickel not only shows what makes a good groove but how it is played. Furthermore, he delivers a wide variety of possibilities for creating your own great grooves and playing these grooves in diff erent ways that expand your own pattern repertoire. The good groove starts with you!
Jost Nickel‘s Groove Book gives you the necessary tools for your drumming to feel good, so the groove happens naturally.
Jost Nickel, drummer with the famous German hip-hop act Jan Delay, studied at Drummers Collective in New York. He worked with many German and international musicians including Barry Finnerty, Randy Brecker, Mousse T., and Seeed.
Nowadays he works as a tutor at both the German University of Pop in Mannheim and the German Music Academy in Hamburg.
He made his mark as a clinician and educator after a series of stunning drum clinics at the PASIC convention in Texas and at the Montréal Drum Fest in Canada, among others.
