    Learn to count the rhythm. If you don't know how to do that, my book can teach you. It's available for free download from the link in my sig. If you share the post on the Facebook page (by clicking the share button below the post) and mention that it's available for free download then I'll give you a couple of free Skype lessons to help. :)

    Any Pantera, pretty much. They play waaaay behind the beat most of the time, even in faster songs, which gives it that feel.

    Me and my drummer were jamming to a swing feel a little bit ago! Fun stuff :agreed:

    Just try to feel the rhythm and come up with something fun and groovy :)
