Learn a Two-Bar Groove Used in Heavydirtysoul by Twenty One PilotsSteve Ley
Heavydirtysoul is the sixth single from Twenty One Pilot's double-platinum selling album, Blurryface (2015).
The grooves used in the verse and chorus sections are based on the above two-bar pattern. A driving eighth note pulse is played on the hi-hat, while the snare funks up the beat with some off-beat sixteenth notes. Note that the second bar is the same as the first except for an added ghost stroke on the ‘e’ of beat 1.
The song also features a half-time bridge section which contains an odd ‘hump’ in the middle of each line. Check out Nate Brown’s free lesson here.
