The Purdie Shuffle Is Profiled in the New York Times!

I mention this because you can hear the "Purdie Shuffle" in the "Mother of All Funk Chords" video that Eric posted a few weeks back. Also if anyone has seen the video: "Classic Albums: The Making of Steely Dan's Aja" you can hear Bernard "Pretty" Purdie waxing eloquent about his signature beat, which is heard on that magnum opus of an album.

Anyway, check it out.

My favorite drum beat. I just wrote a song around it recently. It's fun to try to play, but very hard to do right.

I give you credit for even getting close. I'm just trying to hit the snare drum without whiffing.
