Let me get this out of the way:
- I’m not a percussionist
- I just got my BB last week, so I have not had a chance to fool with it (much) yet
I’m looking for a way to get a real simple, chick-a chick-a chick-a chick-a (i.e. 16ths) groove I can use for a first verse within an acoustic-feel song. Being able to use this within 4/4, 3/4 and 6/8 meters would be pretty sweet. I haven’t find anything like that in the standard-issue songs on my BB yet, so I understand I’ll probably need to create this.
Except that I bet somebody else has already done it.
It occurs to me that the bi-directional motion that it takes to make a shaker make noise might be hard to sync up to the MIDI editor I’ll need in order to create this groove. What works for y’all in situations like this?
