Note Groupings and Combinations demystifies the concept of note groupings: a system of arranging notes which span over the beat (and over the barline).

The groupings are introduced in their basic form before being utilized as grooves and fills.  Note groupings are then combined together, creating even more rhythmic possibilities.

The concepts in this book will increase one’s rhythmic vocabulary and creativity, all while remaining musical.
