Beat-Shift

This one’s for my friend, Dauven, because he asked me about the beat-shifting thing.

Here’s an example with a click and a handclap on 2 & 4. Note: the high note of the click is on count “2.”

  • I shift the starting point of the groove, from 1 to 1E, to 1&, to 1 A – moving it one sixteenth note at a time.
  • It’s tricky because your mind tells you you’re off, and wants to establish a new reference point, a new “One”  …..  I love this sh*t
