There is a land of groove that lives between the realms of straight and swung (triplet-based) eighth-notes. This is a wonderful place where feel and vibe mix to create an undefined subdivision, the “in-between” groove. Many musical styles use it, including blues, funk, reggae, mambo, rock and roll, soul, and others. Everyone plays it a little differently making it a very personal groove.
